LSMS Youth Choir News!

Following Conductor Sophie Pascall's departure from the Youth Choir due to maternity leave, we have recently appointed David Bray as our new Conductor. David comes with a wealth of Youth Choir experience including setting up the Northamptonshire County Youth Choir from scratch and gaining the following credentials;

  • Three times Choir of the Day in the Sainsbury's Choir of the Year competition. Twice reaching the national televised finals of the adult section of the Sainsbury's Choir of the Year competition
  • Twice awarded the Outstanding and four times Highly Commended award at the National Festival of Music for Youth. In an adjudication, Colin Touchin described the choir as being 'extremely fine in every way'.
  • Classic FM featured Youth Choir in recognition as one of the finest in the UK

It's an exciting time for the choir and David has lots of plans to expand and develop membership and opportunities. We are currently planning some recruitment and marketing activities in September, for which current members will be invited to help lead, with a view to start rehearsing shortly after. We will be in contact with current members with more information on this and the rehearsal dates for this term, so keep your eyes open!

In the meantime if you are interested in becoming part of this exciting new chapter for the choir, then please email sarah.barton@leics.gov.uk for more information.
