Leeds Philharmonic Chorus

Chester to Durham and Beamish

Well this season has certainly been busy, ending with four performances in just one week, but what a week.  Saturday the 1st July saw us at Chester Cathedral for a fantastic performance with the Chester Festival Chorus and Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra of Vaughan Williams Sea Symphony. We certainly swayed along to the waves on that seating…

3 Months, 3 Concerts

It’s been a busy three months and members of the Phil have performed in three concerts already.  We started on 14th January with around 30 singers performing the Fauré Requiem and most of Jenkins Armed Man at St John’s in Cleckheaton.  The best bit was the lovely tea they put on for us between the…

Sun, Rain and Midges

Our penultimate concert of the 2015-16 season was a great success despite the attempts by the weather to put a dampner on things.  We chose to think the rumbles of thunder during the afternoons rehearsal were good omens and it did remain largely dry at Bolton Abbey for the evening concert and was nice in…

Then we sang with the Leeds city…

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….

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…
