Individuals interested in singing with the Foundation and Intermediate courses are also most welcome to take part. Book your place today!

Each course running during the weekend provides a stimulating and encouraging learning environment in which participants can develop their skills and discover new techniques.

Courses will be held at Foundation, Intermediate 1 and 2 and Advanced levels  – so whether you’re new to choral conducting, or you’re looking to build on knowledge gleaned on previous SfP courses, there’s a suitable training opportunity on offer for everyone. Details about course approaches at each level, together with information on course fees and suggested overnight accommodation, can be found in the West Midlands Weekend brochure.
