The timetables for Young Direction and Kids of Note are still being developed and will be available closer to the conference date. Here is the brief guide to each event:
Daily schedule for Young Direction
Each day begins at 9.30am (tea and coffee is available from 8.30am) and concludes around 8.00pm. The programme includes workshops on conducting technique, running effective rehearsals for children, working with young voices, and choosing repertoire for children’s choirs. Each day significant time will be dedicated to observing Elise Bradley working with the Kids of Note choir.
