Conductors need to keep their singers engaged during rehearsals. This has always been important, but it is absolutely vital at the moment when many of us are rehearsing our choirs in an online format, or in a socially distant and unfamiliar way. In this session we will explore how to create variety in rehearsals and keep your singers switched on, connected and motivated at this difficult time for choral music.
Booking is essential, as a personalized link will be emailed the day prior to the webinar.
