Support for everyone leading singing

Promoting, improving and maintaining opportunities for the professional development of everyone leading singing, amateur and professional, in the classroom and the community.

"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."
