Since its foundation in 2006, the association World Citizens Music has had as its mission to revitalize and reform the sense of musical creation in today’s world ; to promote the creation of a new music that attempts to eliminate the schism between art & popular music. And this, from its composition to its performance.
This objective was realized by the creation, in 2010, of the European Orchestra ViVo!. ViVo! gathers 36 professional musicians under the directing of Garrett List.
Supporting World Citizens Music, it’s supporting an orchestra with a mission and being part of its development and its influence.
