May 23rd, 2008 - The Next Generation
The Next Generation

Here at the Diocese of Leeds, not only do we teach children to sing, we're also training up the next generation of choir trainers. Peter Thompson, Head Chorister at Leeds Cathedral and year 10 pupil at St John Fisher School in Harrogate, chose to do his work experience with us and got a taste of what life is like as a member of staff in the music department. As well as receiving his first organ lesson from Diocesan Director of Music Ben Saunders, Peter joined Choral Director Christopher Johns in three primary schools and actually took part of the rehearsal in two of them! In the picture, you can see him teaching the choir of St Cuthbert and the First Martyrs' Primary School in Heaton the three-part round "Any time you need a Calypso".

Who knows, perhaps we'll see Peter as a permanent member of the music department staff in ten years time!
