Choir Survival & Management Surgery



Saturday 19th May 2018 - 10:30 – 16:30 BST




St Marks House

1 St Mark's Avenue




By popular demand, we are delighted to herald the return of the highly successful workshops started in 2002 by Tim Knight, who has just released the third book in his trilogy of Concert Survival Guides, 'Seven Steps to More Successful Concerts' to rave reviews!


This workshop will be tailormade to solve the problems peculiar to the participating groups and answer their questions (sent in advance if possible). Tim will also cover all aspects of concert and choir management, which are outlined in the last 2 of his books, including:


  • Concert planning and repertoire;
  • Musical team;
  • Funding;
  • Recruitment;
  • Social Media;
  • Legalities;
  • Publicity and Marketing;
  • After-sales and audience retention;
  • Touring;
  • Sponsorship.


It will be an informal day, which will include a light lunch and refreshments. Places are limited, so make sure you book well in advance! Here's some feedback from previous workshops:


"Once again, thank you for today's workshop. I did appreciate all you had to say, so much common sense really, most of which I have never heard before. The day was very valuable, certainly a help in giving us confidence. There was such a good atmosphere to learn in, which is obviously an aid to progress. You certainly have your feet on the ground."


"Tim's friendly and informal manner puts everyone at their ease, his understanding of choral music and of the problems of singers is sound and we leave his sessions feeling encouraged and better informed."
