Choirs in Yorkshire

With a huge range of opportunities in Leeds, Bradford, Keighley, Huddersfield, Halifax, Wakefield and Pontefract, our choirs offer the very best in musical training and enjoyment for children and young people.

Leeds International Organ Festival

Every year during May, June and July, we bring together some of the world’s leading performers and teachers in a dazzling variety of public concerts and support for organ students in educational workshops.

Cathedral Music

Leeds Cathedral’s six choirs are amongst the finest in the UK with numerous recordings and BBC broadcasts. Places are available for children aged 7-18 and scholarships for university students in conducting and organ.

Upcoming Events

Rehearsals are underway for today's Boys' Choirs Festival...a stunning sound in Langlais' Messe d'Escalquens. All of the young singers have come through our classroom-based Schools Singing Programme.

Next Tuesday our wonderful @DOLMusic Leeds Cathedral Girls' Choir are joined by @ndcchoir for Vespers, Mass (Sermisy, Victoria, Palestrina) and a short concert prior to a fascinating talk from @jamesmacm and RIchard Mantle of @Opera_North - concert and talk only £5 from @LeedsIOF

A privilege and responsibility to work for @DOLMusic where a superb cathedral choir is just part of a sustained system of classroom singing...last night I got to step back and listen as Notre Dame students conducted, an amazing sound from our Girls' Choir and School Scholars!
