GALA CONCERT: The Diocese of Leeds Schools Singing Programme holds its annual Bradford Gala Concert on Tuesday March 27th at St. Joseph's Catholic College, Bradford. Starting at 7pm, the concert features Bradford Youth Choir, a brand new project choir of tenors and basses from St. Bede's Catholic Grammar School and The Holy Family Catholic School in Keighley, and a number of primary school choirs, led by Choral Director Charlotte Kitson and the Director of the Schools Singing Programme, Thomas Leech. This is always a fantastic celebration of singing in the Diocese and the varied programme will have something for everyone! Admission is free.

BROADCASTS: The Bradford Youth Choir enjoyed not one but two live broadcasts on Radio 4 last week, providing music for the Daily Service. Despite setting off to Manchester at a very early hour, both choirs sang with great energy and thoroughly enjoyed the experience - a first live broadcast for the boys. The Girls' Choir broadcast on Tuesday 6th March, including Delibes O salutaris hostia, with the Boys' Choir singing two days later, including Mozart Ave verum corpus.

AUDITIONS: Join Bradford's nationally-acclaimed Catholic choir for young singers and take part in concerts, recordings, BBC broadcasts and tours, as well as singing a huge range of music, from Gabrielli to Glee! We're looking for boys currently in Y3-6, tenors and basses in Y9-11 and girls in Y6-9. Auditions take place on Wednesday March 28th at St. Joseph's Catholic College, Bradford, and Tuesday April 17th and Wednesday April 18th at The Holy Family Catholic School, Keighley (all 3.30-6pm). For more details or to book an audition contact the Director of the Schools Singing Programme, Tom Leech, at
