    Morning all,
    I wrote off for details of the advertised conductors course, a weekend residential, with Geoffery Brand and Roy Newsome at the helm. I was very dissapointed to recive a letter today saying because of lack oif interest the course would not run this year, and MAY run another year!!!! They only had space for 6 candidate's.

    So . . . how many perfect conductors are there?
    None! Everyone, especially at the lower levels (like myself) can learn a great deal from a course like this.

    What a shame.

    If I'd known about it, I would have been interested in this. Where was it advertised? :confused: Whereever it was, I missed it totally!

    You can still get to the story from the home page of tMP!

    This was sent to tMP on the 30th of December:

    It is now just over two weeks since it was posted, and yet it's been cancelled because of a lack of interest!!!? Looks like a hasty decision to me - not enough time seems to have been given for people to register their interest.

    Ah, I think I ignored this because it is called NYBBGB Conductors Course 2006. I just assumed that I was too old (which I wouldn't have been)! Oh well.

    Thanks for that Dyl, It does seem to be quite hasty!
    Although as soon as I saw it I sent a letter, maybe they couldn't see the enthusiasm?

    Quite agree. I would have been interested in this but have got quite a lot on around then and was checking what could be re-arranged before applying - I thought I had a few weeks, at least. :confused: Oh well, I suppose I'll save some beer money...

    Well, thats 3 tMPers shown an interest in the space of one day. Can we rattle up another three and get all six together to write to Mr Biggs and see if he'll open it again?
