We are delighted to have been able to complete a successful CME London Choral Conducting Course by putting the final day onto Zoom. All but three delegates were able to attend the new date from their homes. The faculty was complete as planned for the original date in March. Dr Brandon Williams @brandino994 from New York USA and Mandy Miller from Scotland joined the local faculty Jane Wheeler and Naveen Arles, with delegates from Ireland, Berlin and across the UK. The course content was covered in breadth and depth, learning through singing and conducting preparation, teaching and performance.
The focus repertoire was Winter Wind by Brandon Williams, Take Me To The Water by Rollo Dillworth and Brainstorm by David Brunner. Four of the Masterclasses focused on It Takes A Village by Joan Szymko and a new arrangement of Ergen Deda by Bryan Welton (Unpublished). Watch this space for dates of the next CME London Course 2020-21.
