Join the 365 Leeds Stories Choir

Published on Wednesday, 20 November 2013, 11:00am

Do you live in Leeds? Do you like singing? In the bath, in the street, or has it never crossed your mind, but you’d like to give it a go? How about taking part in a new choir project?

With composer James Redwood, 365 Leeds Stories is organizing two Saturday workshops, where we’ll have the opportunity to create some new songs about Leeds. No experience is needed to take part in one or both workshops which are taking place at:

Leeds Central Library Exhibition Space, on The Headrow
30 November 11 am – 3 pm
7 December, 11 am – 3 pm

Refreshments will be provided.

The aim is to create songs which are a picture of the city as seen by the people who live here. What do you see on the way to work? Where do you hang out and socialise? Where are the places you’d never dream of going? What makes the city feel special to you? What should a song about the city have to say?

This is part of a year long project, taking a look at the city from a range of views. You can find out more about the different strands of the project here.

Following these sessions we’ll be inviting workshop participants and the wider public to join a choir in January, working with our musical director Caroline Challis to polish and rehearse the songs we create ready for a performance on 3rd May 2014, in Leeds Central Library.

If you’re interested in taking part, please get in touch with Peter Reed on 07806786497 or by emailing
