Our Choral Leaders' Festival goes online!

Our Choral Leaders' Festival goes online!

Join us for our first ever Virtual Choral Leaders' Festival! We're delighted to be holding a series of online webinars and workshops from 4th to 6th September for everyone leading singing.

Like so many organisations, sadly we have had to cancel our usual Annual Convention this year. However, in its place we are looking forward to presenting online versions of some of the originally planned Convention sessions, alongside new sessions specially designed to help choral leaders of all kinds through this challenging time.

Spurred on by the success of our recent webinars, we are presenting a series of one-hour webinars across the weekend, including a choice of strands, plus online resources for you to peruse at your leisure, including new repertoire for planning ahead and a virtual exhibition.

Delegate rates

We have tried to make booking as flexible as possible: book for as little as half a day, or join us for the full festival! The more you attend, the better the value for money!

All places include unlimited access to our exclusive virtual goody bag of repertoire and exhibition resources.

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.
