The Diocese of Leeds Schools Singing Programme is recognised as the UK’s leading Catholic singing provision, reaching over 6,000 children across the Diocese every week. Music, and singing in particular, enhances learning; improving mental and physical well-being, building cohesion and, as shown by recent academic studies, contributing to learning development in areas across the curriculum. Our sessions follow a rich and broad curriculum, offering the best in sacred and secular songs, all of which are carefully chosen to develop the children’s vocal and musical development and feed into school collective worship and Masses. Lessons include exciting warm-ups and games and are led by our educationally-expert Choral Directors.  To provide further opportunity, the programme runs a superb range of after-school choirs, including the choirs of Leeds Cathedral, Bradford Catholic Youth Choir, Huddersfield Boys’ and Girls’ Choirs and Bishop Konstant Youth Choirs.

The Keyboard Studies Programme was set up in May 2016, in partnership with the Royal College of Organists and through a generous grant from the Liz and Terry Bramall Foundation. The Programme now numbers teaches over 100 young students across the Diocese, with teaching centres in Bradford, Harrogate, Huddersfield, Keighley, Leeds and Wakefield. Former students have gone on to study Music at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge.

Our Choral Scholarships offer superb opportunities for ambitious students looking to develop a range of professional-level musical skills.

Absolutely lovely time this week with the @DOLMusic in Oundle and Ely with @GabrieliCandP Roar, and singing (and eating) in Cambridge colleges today. Could now sleep for days but the students, colleagues and musical experiences were fab. https://twitter.com/DOLMusic/status/1552299402009640963

On our way home now after a really fabulous @GabrieliCandP ROAR trip. Very tired but it's been a classic residential thanks to wonderful colleagues in both organisations, plus a truly lovely bunch of young people who have excelled themselves. Brilliant last day of work for me! https://twitter.com/DOLMusic/status/1551915449629245444

Bradford Catholic Youth Choir had their end of year concert on Thursday featuring the three Junior Choirs, Senior Boys and Senior Girls' Choirs along with groups from three of the primary schools we sing with, and the Senior Choirs sang for Mass at St. Joseph's Catholic Church-Bradford this morning. It was especially significant as we are saying goodbye to Choral Director Alex Kyle. Alex has worked with the choirs and schools for ten years, first as our Choral Conducting Scholar and then as a full time Choral Director, inspiring thousands of children and providing great opportunities for the choirs. He's taking a new career step and will be studying for a solo voice ensemble MA at York University. Thanks Alex - we'll miss you! ... See MoreSee Less
