New abcd apprenticeship

Laurel Neighbour has been appointed as an abcd apprentice conductor with the Royal Opera House Thurrock Community Chorus. Conducted by Jeremy Haneman, the Chorus is open to anyone aged eight and over, living, working or studying in Thurrock. It works on a mixed repertory, with a focus on established and new work, as well as the Royal Opera House repertory.

Laurel conducts Take Note Blackheath, the London Humanist Choir, Islington Council Choir and choirs for Music in Offices. She also sings in choirs such as St Martin's Voices at St Martin in the Fields, St Paul's Cathedral Consort, and has held scholarships with The Sixteen's training project, Genesis Sixteen, and Voces8. She is also passionate about working with young voices, through her current teaching with Southwark Music Service. She has worked as a London Youth Choir Young Leader, led the children's choir at St Alfege's in Greenwich and was Project Director at Dartford Choral Project.

This is the final apprenticeship under funding from the Ernest Cook Trust, which has enabled us to offer apprenticeships since 2005. The 'hands on' scheme gives conductors the chance to work regularly with an experienced conductor and their choir in rehearsal and concert situations for a year, with the apprentice conductors not only observing rehearsals but also taking an active role and working within concert situations.

We've updated our COVID-19 guidance for choral leaders
We've updated our detailed guidance for choirs and conductors to reflect the latest government guidelines for England. Our practical guide and risk assessment guidance are available to everyone.

Revised guidelines released for Performing Arts
The Government's Performing Arts guidance was updated last night. We are reading it carefully and will post an update later, however it confirms that amateur choirs and groups can continue in England, as previously advised in the government's Coronavirus FAQs, despite confusion earlier in the week.

New government guidance
The governments general social guidelines for England were updated late last night, 22 September. We hope that the performing arts guidelines will be updated soon to reflect these and will be asking for any clarity that's needed as a result.

New government restrictions
Not surprisingly, we're already getting queries about what the government announcement today means for amateur performance and we realise choirs will be anxious to know as soon as possible. Once the new arrangements have been published we will, as ever, be reading carefully and will endeavour to get any clarifications that are needed in conjunction with colleagues. We'll post here and on social media as soon as we can.
