Tapestry International Application and Program Guidelines

After reading the Guidelines document above, click here to submit your choir’s online application for 2026.

Every three years, Elektra welcomes choirs from around the world to its Tapestry International: Celebration of Women’s Choirs. Singing separately and as a massed choir with Elektra, our guest choirs spend three days together sharing, rehearsing, and giving public performances.  In addition to this intensive musical interaction, there is time to sight-see and enjoy beautiful Vancouver, Canada.

At Tapestry International, each ensemble’s unique voice is heard in a free concert called “Choral Threads”. The “Celebration Concert” in downtown Vancouver features cameos by each choir and a massed-choir finale.

Observing Conductors

In a pilot program for 2023, up to six individual conductors traveling without a choir may register to be part of Tapestry International 2023 as an Observing Conductor.  Please read the Tapestry International Observing Conductor Program Guidelines before applying. Then click here to submit your application between October 1, 2025 and March 15, 2026.
