April 2013: Dr Doreen Rao and CME Choral Teacher Education
Living Song was honoured to host a visit from Dr. Doreen Rao in London last week, after her month in residence with Mary Amond O’Brien and Aspiro in Ireland. The main purpose of her visit was to establish the London based annual CME Choral teacher education programme to be hosted by Living Song, in partnership with Boosey and Hawkes and Sarah Bonnell School as part of a UK wide programme. This will lead into the CME Institute in Stirling, Scotland, which will be held alternate years with the Institute in Chicago, USA. The next UK based institute will be held in the summer of 2014.
