Director's Welcome

Welcome to the Florence International Singing Programme.


FISP aims to bring high-level choral music through our two programmes; the Summer Course, and York residential.  2020 and 2021 were unprecedented and challenging years for many arts organisations. Despite the challenges,  we have continued to put our vision into motion.  We believe passionately that despite various lockdowns, our ability to make music together should not be affected. With this in mind, we held various online come and sing events. Now that we are allowed to sing together again, we have been working hard and can announce that if government guidelines continue to allow, we plan to run our Florence International Singing Programme in August 2022, with a domestic residential in York in July 2022. Feel free to explore our website, and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. 

Caius Lee

(Founder and Musical Director)


'' Caius is exceptionally good-natured and has a wonderful sense of humour. Combined with his musical talent, this made for a fantastic day of singing great music with a great conductor.''

Come and Sing Participant 2020

''Caius is an excellent musician whose practical skill is matched by a broad knowledge of intellectual engagement with a variety of musical genres. His rehearsal technique is efficient and stimulating and he is able to offer challenges to the most experienced singers whilst not leaving the less confident behind. He has a remarkable ability to transform a piece of music into something really special in a short amount of rehearsal time. He is also proficient in singing technique and invests much time and energy into the progression of individual singers. As a person, he is friendly, approachable and reliable, and communicates incredibly well with people.''
