The partnership between Bishop Konstant Catholic Academy Trust and Bishop Konstant Youth Choir began in January 2017 with the appointment of Choral Director, Charlotte Kitson, to deliver weekly choral singing sessions in the primary schools of the Trust. Each class learns a range of music to complement and enhance their learning about the liturgical year, as well as songs from different times, cultures and styles. In addition, many of the schools have gone on to be successful at the Rothwell Competitive Festival of Music, under Charlotte’s direction.

The Bishop Konstant Youth Choir was formed in March 2017 and rehearses after school in four satellite groups each week, with members aged 8-18 enjoying a high quality musical education at no cost to them. They regularly sing masses, concerts and services in parishes throughout the Wakefield and Pontefract area, as well as at the annual Diocesan Choir Festivals at Leeds 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.
