I wasn’t always into choral music – I grew up loving jazz and spent a lot of time listening to Ella Fitzgerald in our family kitchen.

HELP KEEP LVM RUNNING
We are currently kept running by our members' fees only and receive no external funding. As a newly registered charity, we are currently applying for arts funding to help us to cover core costs such as our rehearsal venue, paying our Musical Director and hiring/purchasing music to perform.
We are also applying for project funding with three principle aims:
1) So that we can run high-quality choral workshops from visiting conductors
2) To start a Kodály Method music training programme for LVM members and the wider choral community in Leeds
3) To enable us to put on exciting concert projects for SATB and piano with an accompanying pianist.
Any donations we receive, large or small, from charitable trusts or individuals will help us provide the most excellent choral training for the members of our choir.
