Participants will gain experience in both singing and conducting a choir, allowing them to gain a deeper understanding of both sides. The importance of improving listening skills and experimentation will also be examined.
All registered participants must select a musical piece they would like to work on. Make sure to choose your piece carefully, ensuring it is in 3 or 4 parts so your colleagues can sing it.
