ABTOT is delighted to welcome Run by Singers Limited (membership number 5471) as a Member from 1 December 2022. Run by Singers began by organising singing trips abroad for their own choirs. They organised their first two public ventures in 2003, one in Assini and one in St Omer, France. These singing holidays are proved to be hugely popular and they have been encouraged – and persuaded – to organise similar singing weekends and holidays every year since. You don’t need to come as part of a choir – they make their own choir. Their holidays are for individual singers, couples and groups of friends. Most events are abroad but there are always some singing weekends in the UK. All singing holidays conclude with a concert in a prestigious location. Since their first two programmes, they have sung in the Madeleine Paris, the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, and St Mark’s Venice. They have also travelled to Estonia, Salzburg, Ghent and Florence. They take their singing seriously – but they also place a lot of emphasis on the social side. Finding good places to eat together and allowing plenty of time for sightseeing is important – particularly for non-singing partners. Their approach is simple really, they go to places that we know and love, to sing music that we love, and enjoy spending time with other singers that share their passion.
