Success stories from Cathedral Singers, Scholars and Youth Choir members



The Diocese of Leeds Schools Singing Programme is the largest church programme of choral music for children and young people in the UK, currently enabling 2,500 children to access high quality weekly singing sessions. It is also a significant national youth programme.

The Schools Singing Programme comprises a total of 45 school choirs, working in some of the most deprived areas of Yorkshire. Professional Choral Directors lead the inclusive development and training choirs in schools, supporting opportunities for talented young singers to audition for one of the six boys' and six girls' choirs based in Bradford, Keighley, Huddersfield and Leeds.

Established in 2003, the Schools Singing Programme has to date worked with over 10,000 children and young people and the Leeds model has been copied widely by other organisations. As one of the largest youth programmes in the country, the catechetical, musical and educational rewards flow richly into the schools and the liturgical life of the Diocese of Leeds.

A new page of testimonials has been compiled to which gathers feedback from former singers and scholars in the choirs. This is complented by comments from parents and partners in schools.
