Choral Connect

Choral Connect

Choral Connect is our professional development conference for leaders of all types of group singing, and will run in 2023 in the three days immediately prior to Sing Aotearoa, so that conductors will be able to participate in both events. The conference will run from Wednesday 27th September until Friday 29th September at King’s College in Ōtāhuhu.

At Choral Connect ’23 we plan to reinstate the conducting workshops and masterclasses that have formed a vital part of practical conductor training in the past. We’ll also have presentations on a range of topics pertaining to choral leadership, as well as evening choral showcases.

We’re thrilled that Dr Karen Grylls will return as Artistic Director for Choral Connect ’23, assisted by Jono Palmer as Artistic Programme Coordinator.
