Since May 2020, abcd has been hosting panel discussions and lectures led by our team of tutors and special guests on a wide range of choral topics. These webinars have been recorded and now form an invaluable bank of resources for all choral directors.

We are making these recordings available for a small fee of £5 per webinar. This fee includes a link to the recording and access to any supplementary material from the webinar. Please note that some webinars are free to access for abcd members.

The following webinars cost £5 for non members to book here and are free to access for abcd members (N.B. please login to access these webinars using the links below):

On the 30th May, we hosted a webinar on The changing face of choirs: adapting to Covid-19. As this webinar is of such great importance to the choral community at this time, abcd have made the decision to keep this webinar accessible for free on YouTube here.

Additional resources following on from the 30th May webinar: Professor Ashley has put together an information sheet about choirs and aerosols which can be found here. On 4th June 2020, abcd published a research paper on the impact of the COVID-19 virus on choral activity in the UK. Find out more here.
