Can you support us?

We hope that you find these new online resources useful and informative! Over the coming months, these resources will be developed and added to, and we hope that this Resource Bank will form a useful glossary of information for all choral leaders. However in light of the ongoing situation with coronavirus and the immediate postponement of our Spring training programme and annual Choral Leaders' Festival, abcd, like many other charitable arts organisations, faces a difficult few months. If you feel able to make a donation to help sustain the abcd community of staff and conductor tutors and to support the creation of innovative online resources, we would encourage you to do so here.
