abcd Annual Convention, 25-27 August 2006

Press release from the abcd annual convention

If you lead choral singers, you can't afford to miss this year's abcd Convention at The Sage Gateshead

British and international choral experts will lead practical sessions on choral and conducting techniques, different music styles, repertoire, working with different age groups and much more. There's a young conductor's course and a large trade fair - great for new repertoire!

The Convention climax will be the Gala Concert, showing choral singing at its best and featuring the Danish National Girls Choir, London Adventist Chorale, Tees Valley Youth Choir and the Northern Sinfonia Chorus, The Sage Gateshead's resident choir.

abcd's fantastic annual Convention gives a whole year's motivation in one weekend. Everyone who matters in choral singing will be there. Get it in your diary now.
