Association Of British Choral Directors

Last day for Convention Early Bird Discounts!

Our Convention Early Bird discount finishes today, 5 July, giving a £20 saving on the full rate.

This year's Convention takes place at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Glasgow from 25-27 August. There are new ideas and challenges on offer for all parts of the choral music spectrum, whether your interest is Baroque or Pop, community or classroom, so why not recharge your choral batteries before the new season and join us!

Click here for more details, download a brochure and booking form, or book online.

International flavour

We're delighted to welcome the Norwegian Student Choral Society to Convention, an international award-winning male voice choir, and their conductor Marit Tøndel Bodsberg. Swedish composer Mårten Jansson completes our Nordic strand, with a session exploring Scandinavian choral repertoire.

Scottish flavour

No bagpipes! But the opportunity to hear and experience some of the best of Scottish music and performers and presenters from north of the border. Don't miss hearing about the forgotten Scottish Renaissance, Sir James MacMillan in conversation, or our friends from NYCoS performing and leading sessions, along with many more.

Getting to & around Glasgow

Glasgow is exceptionally easy to get to, by air, rail or road, and our Convention venue and accommodation are both located in the city centre. Click here for more details and there is lots of useful information on Glasgow Convention Bureau's website here.
