New NZCF ACD Professional Development Programme
The NZCF Association of Choral Directors (ACD) is pleased to introduce a new Professional Development Programme for conductors and choirs entering The Big Sing, supported by Tour Time.

The main objectives of the programme, to be jointly organised under the umbrella of the ACD and The Big Sing (TBS), are to provide professional development for selected TBS choir leaders and their choirs through workshops and attendance at TBS Final, on a non-performing basis.

This year 12 schools from the Central Region – Wellington, East Coast and combined Manawatu/Wanganui/Taranaki (four schools per centre) – will be given coaching by a previous Finale adjudicator as well as the conductor of a high-performing TBS secondary school choir. 

The coaches and dates for this year's workshops are:
  • Karen Grylls and Rowan Johnston (Taranaki/Manawatu/Wanganui on 27 June)
  • John Rosser and Sue Densem (Wellington on 18 July and East Coast on 19 July)
Schools from the above regions will be invited to apply for the programme before the closing date of 30 April 2015.
