Conductor places sold out!

To be put on our waiting list, contact Elisabeth Brierley.

Observer places available.

If you are aged 18-25 and interested in leading a choir, or already have some conducting experience and would like to learn more, come and extend your choral leadership skills by joining Sarah Tenant-Flowers for a stimulating day of active participation, observation and ideas. Participants will have the chance to try out what they have learned with the three chamber choirs who are performing in the LICC: Coro, Chantage and FREIA.

No previous conducting experience is necessary, but the day is also suitable for those who already have some experience in leading singing and would like to develop their conducting and musical skills.

There are a maximum of 9 conductor places available, so it's advisable to book early to avoid disappointment!

Price:

Young Conductor Day Fee £20 (includes membership to abcd)

Observer Fee £10

We are grateful to the Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation for their support of our Young Conductors Programme
