Choral Conducting Masterclass with Amy Bebbington

Saturday 23rd June 2018

Led by Dr. Amy Bebbington, Director of Training for abcd

Abinger Hammer Village Hall, Felday Rd, Dorking, RH5 6XQ

Cost: abcd members: £70 (non-members: £80 / observers: £25)

Amy will lead an Intermediate level Masterclass for those wanting to further develop their choral conducting skills. She has a natural gift for drawing out the greatest potential from students in a very engaging and encouraging manner.

Members from Amy's regular choirs will combine to form a very competent and friendly choir whose ethos will be to work hard, be supportive and to "sing what they see". This will be a fantastic opportunity to get a good length of valuable podium time with some really responsive singers and to observe Amy working with other conductors too.

Repertoire will include folk, love, travel and seasonal songs by Holst, Cecilia MacDowell, Stephen Paulus, Stephen Chatman and Sarah Deere-Jones (Carmina Iocunda - enjoying numerous exciting premieres this year). This repertoire is all for choir and harp but we will be working with a pianist on the day. Music will be sent out to conductors in advance.

If you require return transport to/from Dorking station, this can be arranged. Refreshments will be provided (tea/cake) but please bring your own lunch.

Early booking is essential as numbers will be limited.

To reserve your place, please contact Amy no later than 25th May, on amybebbs@yahoo.co.uk / 07722 144808
