In 2012 Feniarco stipulated a memorandum of understanding with the Italian Federation of Pueri Cantores and the Südtiroler Chorverband with the aim of activating a relationship of mutual collaboration to pursue common goals aimed at promoting the choral activity in all its expressions and enhancing the national choral heritage.
In this regardFeniarco and the partners undertake to designate each one a representative who represents them, without the right to vote, to the respective Assemblies.
It is hoped that the collaboration started may bring positive results and mutual satisfaction, with a view to the growth and development of choral music in all its forms of expression, also intended as an important opportunity for the dissemination of musical culture and social promotion.
