Bradford Catholic Youth Choir comprises four separate choirs for boys and girls, and is supported by St. Bede’s and St. Joseph’s Catholic College and St. Joseph’s Church, Bradford. The choirs have around 100 members rehearsing weekly during term time, with Junior Choirs in Bradford and Keighley, and Senior Boys’ and Girls’ Choirs based at St. Bede’s and St. Joseph’s. The choirs provide expert vocal tuition and the opportunity to take part in Masses (sung regularly at St Joseph’s Church in Bradford and at other churches in the Bradford and Keighley Deaneries), concerts, competitions, recordings and broadcasts on both BBC Radio and Television; our Bradford Catholic Youth Choir were delighted to broadcast the 2019 Christmas Day service on BBC One.

Past performances have included singing for Pope Benedict at the Beatification of Cardinal Newman, a number of tours including taking part in the 2014 World Choir Games in Riga, Latvia, orchestral performances including Mahler’s Symphony 8 with the Orchestra of Opera North, and Paco Pena’s flamenco Requiem por la Tierra.

They were the first Northern choir invited to take part in the Gabrieli Consort’s youth choir training programme, Gabrieli Roar, and have given a number of concerts with the world-famous consort – in July 2018 senior members of the choirs took part in a recording and performance with the Gabrieli Consort and a number of other leading youth choirs in Ely Cathedral.

Members of our after school choirs are drawn from Schools Singing Programme sessions within local schools. If our team of Choral Directors do not visit your child’s school and they are interested in joining one of our choirs, please contact us at office@dioceseofleedsmusic.org.uk or 0113 244 8634 to arrange an audition.

My voice is changing right now so I’m in this range where I can sing quite high or low, so I can either sing treble or tenor right now! When I sing it gives me more confidence in school and everywhere. The whole choir feels like a community and you get to meet lots of new people as well. My favourite pieces are some of the Glorias, I also like singing in other languages. 13 years old, Leeds Cathedral Senior Boys Choir ... See MoreSee Less

I feel happy because it just lets all your emotions out. I like singing. My favourite thing about choir is singing, and I’m really excited for the BBC broadcast. We’ve been rehearsing for it since September, since we came back from the holidays. If you feel nervous about singing imagine it’s only you in the room and you’re singing to yourself. When I joined I was really nervous, but my sister was in the choir (she’s in Seniors now) and she helped me to sing. 10 years old, Bradford Junior Choir ... See MoreSee Less
