abcd Live

Saturday 1st October 2022

10am - 6.15pm (registration from 9.30am)

Hallé St Peter's, Manchester

After two years of online Festivals, join us for an exciting live day of workshops, repertoire, exhibition and networking for everyone who leads singing.

Catch up with colleagues, meet new ones, browse new repertoire and take part in practical sessions.

About the day

There will be two strands of sessions for all choral leaders, plus a dedicated strand for teachers and everyone working with young voices. Our trade exhibition will be alongside session space in the main hall, ideally placed for browsing in session breaks. The full timetable will be published in early August.

About our venue

Our day takes place at the wonderful venue of Hallé St Peter's in central Manchester. Situated at the heart of the resurgent area of Ancoats, Hallé St Peter's has been built around a restored, Grade II listed former church and provides a home for the Hallé's rehearsals and recordings, its choirs and Youth Orchestra, as well as a space for education workshops and small performances.
