ABCD Choral Leaders' Festival »
With great regret we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s abcd Choral Leaders’ Festival, our 35th Annual Convention, which was to have taken place from 28-30 August at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. The decision was taken in light of the ongoing situation regarding coronavirus, both in the UK and abroad.
