Interactive Choral Day

Saturday 4th November 2017

Gresham Centre, Gresham Street, London, EC2V 7BX

A day of practical, hands-on learning for singers, conductors and choral leaders.

We're delighted to join with the British Voice Association again for a mini-conference day of sessions on the voice and leading voices from a wide cross-section of presenters. The day takes place in the lovely setting of the Gresham Centre, in the Wren church of St Anne and St Agnes, in the heart of the City of London, and lunch is included, giving a great opportunity for networking.
