Two Amazing Concerts

Well despite worries over ticket sales we actually had a full cathedral for the Rachmaninov Vespers.  It was the perfect venue for such a piece, with the lovely acoustics adding to the haunting melodies.  The interspersion of the choral work with the Mozart cello pieces worked really well. Then we sang with the Leeds city…

Two extra concerts

The Phil has been delighted to accept an invitation from Leeds to sing in two extra concerts this year. The first in March is a collaboration with the city of Leeds Youth Orchestra under the baton of Dougie Scarfe and members of other choirs to sing William Walton’s Henry V. The second comes along at…

Ice, Snow and a Cracking Mozart

Winter hit over the weekend with significant snow showers over the high ground and bitter frosts.  However that did not stop a good audience turning out for our first main concert of the 2015-16 season. Under the baton of Grant Llewellyn and accompanied by the Manchester Camerata we opened with Splendente te. Short but punchy….

Joy and sunshine for Jack

Our beloved tenor – Jack Parkes was ordained as a deacon on the 4th July 2015 at Ripon Cathedral, and will be a new Curate, to the Benefice of Cleckheaton.  Jack will work across the three churches there. To show our friendship and support, a good proportion of the choir turned up for his first service on…

Last Beethoven !

Well it is Sunday and so we are getting ready for our third performance of Beethoven 9th Choral Symphony with the fantastic Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra.

Chorus at full throttle

Well we are into the new year, and still rolling high from a fantastic concert last Saturday where we performed with the BBC Philharmonic and the Leeds Cathedral Choir.  The kids were very good if a little over awed, looking very smart in their uniforms.  Some were so small they had to stand on an…

December Messiah and Carols

December is always a busy time for the Phil and this year has been no exception, having already completed a tour to Belfast and performed in three concerts just the month before. We teamed up with Florilegium, a fantastic and very friendly baroque orchestra to perform Messiah with a difference – much more like it…

Friendly People, Floods, Two Fantastic Concerts and Sore Feet

Our week in Belfast was certainly memorable. We were made to feel very welcome by the locals who all seemed to know we were coming and were very full in the praise of our main performance of the War Requiem. Read the full review The days alternated around walking to and fro between two cathedrals…

Coffee, cakes and some new singers too

Well the 2014 – 2015 Season has started well for what will be a very busy year with 11 performances of 9 main works, some of which we will be performing in Belfast in a quick tour in November.  See our new season brochure for all the details. Preparations are well in hand for both…
