Webinar recording: Livestreaming solutions for rehearsing and performing

With socially-distanced rehearsals and performances set to continue for some time, livestreaming is an alternative option that can help you reach as many people as possible. In this webinar, we take a look at the process of livestreaming, talk through the different technology, platforms and software available, and discuss how to get the most from the experience.

The webinar covers:

Conducting skills course

For many leisure-time music groups, it’s often the case that someone in the group with no formal training may step in and conduct a rehearsal as a one-off, and then suddenly find themselves permanently on the podium. Orchestras for All’s new online conducting skills development course can help to address this skills gap.
