Federation of breton choirs
To write to Kanomp Breizh


Federation Kanomp Breizh was founded in 2004 by the choir conductors of the choirs members of commission "choirs" of Confederation Kendalc'h. It was born thanks to the confederation, to René Abjean a well-known composer in Brittany, and with the support of Region Brittany.

Kanomp Breizh gathers choirs from the historical Brittany. It aims at promoting Breton  choirs, singing traditionnal as well as today's songs. On the one hand it takes on a role of conservation of the traditional scores, and on the other hand it helps Breton composers in further creation of their works for choirs. It furthers as well the diffusion of Breton songs to a larger public.

A choir just needs to be interested in Breton songs to become a member of federation Kanomp Breizh. Joining us offers to enjoy advantages and  activities provided by Kanomp Beizh : vocal and musical formations for choir members and conductors, taking part in different meetings for choirs and concerts, our newsletter sent to each choir member, free access to our online scores library. Federation Kanomp Breizh also offers its members  propositions of concerts, animations, in order to  let choirs be a stronger part of festivals and cultural events in whole Brittany.

 Federation Kanomp Breizh is a member of the Cultural Council of Brittany, of Gouelioù Breizh, Kevre Breizh, Bro Gozh Comity.
