AOTOS Events


AOTOS has a busy calendar, including both national conferences (in a different town or city each year) and area events across the UK.

Our residential summer conference this July has the theme “It was all right when it left my lips!” and includes:

  • sessions with David Howard, Jenevora Williams, Gillyanne Kayes, Jeremy Fisher, and Jonathan Dove
  • speakers in residence Outi Kähkönen, Kristin Linklater and Ron Morris
  • ensuite accommodation on campus near the centre of Chester.
  • AOTOS Summer 2008 Conference (RNCM)
  • Summer 2008 Conference
  • AOTOS Summer 2009 Conference

Our inspiring conferences draw together a variety of excellent and knowledgeable speakers; area events tend to focus on one speaker who presents one particular area of vocal interest. Our three-day summer conference is the jewel in the crown, letting teachers access leaders in their field of knowledge as well as promoting personal development through networking and social interaction.

AOTOS has a wide membership across the UK, so in 2016 we will be offering a residential summer conference in Chester, four area events throughout the Spring term, and an autumn conference in London.
