David and Gillian Victor-Smith receive 2016 Chair's Award
We were delighted to award this year’s Chair’s Award for Choral Leadership jointly to David and Gillian Victor-Smith at the University of Winchester as part of this year’s Annual Convention. This is the third year of the award and once again, nominations were very strong, but the panel felt that David and Gillian’s contribution, not just to choral music making but to abcd, has been substantial over many years.
