For the past six years Leeds Male Voice Choir’s festive concerts at Leeds Cathedral have supported St George’s Crypt.
Whilst we’re unable to sing in 2020, we’re continuing to support the vital work of St George’s Crypt supporting the homeless and vulnerable in Leeds through The Spirit of Christmas.
Please visit our JustGiving page and donate if you are able to.
The choir welcomed nine new singers to rehearsal this week, as graduates of the 2020 Find Your Voice Programme.
Due to lockdown the choir meets virtually using Zoom and are currently rehearsing a mixture of current and new music for forthcoming performances later in 2020.
Vicente Magalhães joins the musical team in January 2019 as Accompanist after an extensive recruitment process. A noted jazz and classical pianist, Vicente will provide rehearsal and concert accompaniment and join the choir on their forthcoming tour of Budapest.
Originating from Lisbon, Vicente holds a Bachelors Degree in Music from the University of York and Postgraduate Diplomas from Leeds College of Music in Jazz and Creative Music. Vicente has previously led the University of York Big Band, has provided choral accompaniment in York and performs his own original music with his own jazz trio throughout Leeds and York.
