Florence International Singing Programme

Director's Welcome

Welcome to the Florence International Singing Programme.


FISP aims to bring high-level choral music to those on its programmes. We have two programmes; our Summer Course, and our York residential.  2020 and 2021 was an unprecedented year for many arts organisations. However, this has not stopped up from continuing to put our vision into motion.  We believe passionately that despite various lockdowns, it should not affect our ability to make music together. With this in mind, we have held various online come and sing events and will continue to do so until it is safe and practical to sing in a room together again. 

Music is crucial in our everyday lives; it is scientifically proven to increase mental and physical wellbeing. It conveys the ineffable, which words quite often struggle to replicate. Together, we believe that we will overcome this virus. However, this virus has highlighted the divide in the music industry. This is why we have set up our latest programme, Fisp: Inspire, to help young people from disadvantaged backgrounds achieve their goals. Read more about this fantastic project here.  

If the government guidelines allow, we plan to rerun our Florence International Singing Programme in August 2022, with a domestic residential in YORK in July 2022.  summer (2021). 

We hope you stay safe and hope to see you at one of our courses shortly.
