Young Conductors' Programme

A fantastic opportunity for young people to work alongside peers and concentrate on the practical aspects of choir training, conducting and rehearsal techniques. abcd's unique course offers a dynamic and fresh approach for those considering further training or employment in singing leadership.

The courses are open to all aged 18-25 not earning their living from conducting. No previous conducting experience is necessary, but participants are required to read music, and should have instrumental or singing technique and experience. The course is also suitable for those who would like to develop their conducting and vocal technique or have some experience in leading choral music.

Young Conductor Day

21 October, 10am - 5pm

Royal Academy of Music, Marylebone Road, London, NW1 5HT

Our next Young Conductor Day is part of the London International Choral Conducting Competition


You don't have to enter the competition to take part - just be aged 18 - 25 and interested in conducting singing.

Join Sarah Tenant-Flowers for a stimulating day of active participation, observation and ideas. Participants will have the chance to try out what they have learned with the three chamber choirs who are performing in the LICC: Coro, Chantage and FREIA.

No previous conducting experience is necessary, but the day is also suitable for those who already have some experience in leading singing and would like to develop their conducting and musical skills.

There are a maximum of 9 conductor places available, so it's advisable to book early to avoid disappointment!
