Welcome to the CCNF Choral Academy, a sub-division of the Choral Celebration Network Foundation dedicated to empowering conductors and choirs to create beautiful music together.

Our academy consists of:

The Mzanzi Conductors Convention as our flagship project due to the potential impact in the local and international industry.

Masterclasses at festivals.

The Community Connectors initiative.

For 2024 we plan specific online presence initiative to support conductors even more.

Online Learning.

National Conductors Convention

Our annual Mzanzi Conductors Convention is a can’t-miss event for conductors of all levels. Featuring internationally renowned conductors and 15 workshop masterclasses, with many choirs showcasing their performance standards and more, the convention is a unique opportunity to learn from the best in the industry.

Our most recent convention was a huge success, and our next one is on March 8-10, 2024. Do not miss out – register now!


Before every one of our 28 Choral Celebration Festival Series concerts in 2024, we will be offering masterclasses for participating conductors.

Led by our network of master conductors, these sessions are an opportunity to collaborate and learn from some of the best in the industry.

For 2024, we plan a personalised session should you wish to enrol for that with your choirs, as well as a combined choirs masterclass with a surprise African tradition you can take away with you. Best of all, they are free for festival series participants!

Community Connectors Initiative

We are proud to offer the Community Connectors initiative, which provides marketing materials for all CCNF events, with the Choral Celebration Festival Series having the most significant impact due to the number of participants.

Participants receive professionally designed marketing materials that showcase their role in the community and the role of their choir/school/organisation and highlight the specific value offering of the conductor in the community.

They share this on their social channels. By sharing these materials, choirs can spread the word about their participation in the festival series and help build a community of passionate choral music lovers.

Online Learning

CCNF is in the process of creating online training videos by master conductors and industry experts to make available to all Conductors and Choral singers who might be interested.
