Leeds People’s Choir was formed in 1990 as a secular choir by a group of singers living in Leeds.
Leeds People’s Choir is a social justice choir – we sing to support causes and campaigns we believe in and to promote equality, justice and community. Led by our inspirational MD Jenny Goodman, we are a friendly bunch who sing songs of joy, liberation, struggle, celebration and peace from around the world.
In 2019, to celebrate our 30th anniversary, LPC started on a project (funded by Leeds Inspired) to create new songs about hitherto unsung Leeds people, working with composer Fran Wyburn, who put our words to music. We premiered the first of these songs, Women of Leeds, at Whitby Street Choir. We are now working on our second song, celebrating the historic Middleton railway.
The choir is open to anyone who enjoys singing – there are no auditions and we usually learn songs by ear so there is no need to read music.
