Support for everyone leading singing - join us today

"As a choral conductor, you can't make it on your own. To do your best work you need to meet others, exchange ideas, listen and learn. In the UK there is no better forum for doing this than abcd, and I encourage every choral conductor, whether relative novice or experienced professional, to join and reap the benefit. abcd offers something for everyone. I've never attended an abcd event and not come away enriched and inspired."

abcd President

From the smallest village choir to our most well known professionals, as we get back to making music together after the last few years, it's never been more important to be part of a collective voice.

As a membership-based organisation for over 35 years with no public funding, our membership is crucial to enabling us to continue with our work supporting choir leaders of all kinds.

Who can join?

Anyone and everyone involved in leading singers, whether you've just been persuaded to take over your school choir and don't know where to start, you conduct a church choir, a cathedral choir, a chamber choir, a choral society or a community choir - or all of those.

We also offer business membership options for music organisations and businesses of any kind, large and small.

What do I get?

Membership gives you advice and guidance for you and your choir, discounted rates on our courses and events, and a wide range of exclusive member-only online resources and events.

What does it cost?

Individual membership is £80 a year, or just £7 per month. If you're under 28, rates start at just £12 per year. Business membership starts at £160. Find out the best options for you on our subscription page. Our membership year runs from 1 May to 30 April.
