The Diocese of Leeds Schools Singing Programme is recognised as the UK’s leading choral education programme, striving to make outstanding singing tuition, music education and performance opportunities accessible to children and young people in communities which are least likely to encounter them. The programme reaches 7,500 children weekly, both during and outside the school day in over 150 choral groups, including boys’ and girls’ choirs in Bradford, Huddersfield, Keighley, Pontefract and Wakefield, together with the six choirs of Leeds Cathedral. Their schools and choral work during the pandemic received a prestigious Royal Philharmonic Society Inspiration Award, with their digital singing sessions and virtual choir recordings receiving over 75,000 views on YouTube.

The Leeds Cathedral Choirs draw their membership from inner-city Leeds state schools with children recruited through weekly Schools Singing Programme sessions. Acknowledged as among the finest in the country, the choirs sing eight cathedral services a week and perform regularly in BBC broadcasts, concerts and recordings. The Cathedral Choirs broadcast Midnight Mass for BBC One in 2017 and BBC Radio 4 in 2018 and their recordings of choral works by Maurice Duruflé and Arvo Pärt for Brilliant Classics have received critical acclaim.

At this time of the year, the Diocese of Leeds Music Department would like to thank the Trusts, Foundations and individual supporters whose generosity has made these life-changing opportunities possible. If you are interested in transforming the lives of children and young people through music, please contact: office@dioceseofleedsmusic.org.uk or visit: https://www.dioceseofleedsmusic.org.uk/how-can-i-support-young-musicians/
