Bradford and Keighley Choirs - Girls


Bradford Catholic Girls' Choir

Bradford Catholic Girls' Choir has performed to local, national and international audiences. In 2009 they were honoured with the Senior Choirs Award at the National Festival of Music for Youth in Birmingham for their ‘outstanding musicianship' and were also placed as the top UK choir in the senior children's choir class at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod.

Formed in June 2006, the choir consists of up to forty members, rehearsing weekly at St Joseph's Catholic College in Bradford. The choir sings Mass twice termly at churches across Bradford and Keighley, they give regular concert performances and take part in choral competitions. The choir has appeared on BBC1, Radio 2 and Radio 4, and their CD - recorded with Bradford Catholic Boys' Choir - is available on the recordings page of this site.

The girls have performed with various groups including Leeds Cathedral Choirs, Bradford Festival Choral Society and Bradford University Orchestra and Singers. In 2010 the choir took part, by invitation, in the 9èmes Rencontres Internationales de Choeurs d'enfants in Provence, France. They sang at the Benediction of John Henry Newman, celebrated by Pope Benedict XVI at Cofton Park, Birmingham and broadcast live across the world.
They are currently planning a tour to take part in the 2014 World Choir Games in Latvia.

The choir is directed by the Director of the Schools Singing Programme, Thomas Leech, assisted by the Choral Director for Bradford, Charlotte Kitson.
