Primary School Choirs in Bradford
The Diocese of Leeds provides specialist choral training for pupils at Bradford and Keighley primary schools during term time. Choral Directors Directors Charlotte Kitson (Bradford) and Lucy Appleyard (Keighley) focus on engaging sessions to spark enthusiasm for singing, whilst developing healthy vocal technique, an understanding of musical styles and notation, and providing an introduction to a wide range of music reflecting both the great Catholic heritage and the cultural diversity of the area. Boys and girls from these schools are invited to join the specialist auditioned boys' and girls' choirs. The programme benefits from rehearsal slots for the choirs during the normal school day.
The choirs have enjoyed success in Yorkshire music competitions and have broadcast to the nation on BBC Songs of Praise.
