In May 2016, the Organists’ Training Programme was launched to provide high-quality organ and piano tuition across the Diocese to choristers, school students and adult learners. With a national decline in students learning the organ, the programme aims to reintroduce this instrument steeped in tradition to students of all backgrounds, teaching them valuable musical skills and opening doors to opportunities in further education. The Organists’ Training Programme is already oversubscribed; having reached our current limit of 45 students we are looking for a donor that will enable us to expand this exciting project further to continue developing and inspiring the next generation of organists.

A wonderful experience and great privilege for our young singers to lead the music for @BBCOne Christmas Day Mass, live from St. Joseph's Church Bradford. Bradford Catholic Youth Choir sang beautifully - well done and Happy Christmas! You can watch again via BBC iPlayer.

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
