The Choir is led by our Musical Director, Lorraine Cowburn, and is assisted by a Management Committee elected from the Choir. The Choir's aims and purposes are set out in our Constitution, and include:
Leeds People's Choir was formed in 1990 as a secular choir by a group of singers living in Leeds. We support events organised by others as well as those organised by the Choir. In 2000 we celebrated the Choir's 10th anniversary by organising a Leeds Voices Concert. In 2004 the Choir hosted the national Street Choirs Festival.
You don't need to know how to read music (although it is useful) as we do a lot of learning by ear.
We sing unaccompanied usually in four parts: soprano, alto, tenor and bass.
The choir is open to anyone who enjoys singing - there are no auditions!
We meet every Wednesday during term time, from 7.30pm to 9 pm at the Swarthmore Centre in Woodhouse Square. (Map page here.)
