IFCM is the official representative of choral music on the International Music Council of UNESCO. The Council recognises that there are perhaps more people in the world participating in choral music than in any other group activity and that choral musicians need an organisation such as IFCM to encourage and facilitate international communication and co-operation.
In 1990 the IFCM set up the International Centre for Choral Music in Namur, Belgium. Through IFCM’s worldwide network, this centre receives a large number of brochures, books and other documents from choral organisations around the world about their activities. Much of this information is published in the IFCM's International Choral Bulletin, and is available for purposes of research.
The Slovene Choral Society is a member of IFCM.
