Young Direction was a conference for leaders of children's choir at all stages of their development – whether highly experienced or just starting out as a conductor.

Kids of Note was a national children's choir course for young singers aged 9 to 14. We hope that, ultimately, a national children’s choir will evolve from this gathering.

Both events were run by the NZCF Association of Choral Directors, and led by Artistic Director Karen Grylls and Guest Conductor Elise Bradley.

Founded in 2010, the NZCF Association of Choral Directors (ACD) is an organisation within the NZCF providing professional development for our choral directors and a mentoring network for them.
