The YPC's next concert, is on Saturday 19th March 2016 at 7.00pm in 'The Venue', Leeds and is a Partnership Concert with the Leeds College of Music (LCoM).
The choir is proud of its ongoing partnership with the LCoM, where it annually sponsors the Margaret Markland Choral Bursary.
This allows 3 students from one of the College's Musical Pathways, who are successful through audition, to become members of the choir and to experience Choral music at it's highest level. This includes experiencing, the discipline of rehearsal under professional direction, the enjoyment and satisfaction of working alongside other like minded individuals in a way only being a member of a choir can give, the exhilaration of high quality performance with professional soloists and orchestras in superb venues and the opportunity to undertake solo works within the choir.
Winning this bursary gives the successful students an excellent CV reference for when they enter the professional musical world and is proving an excellent recruiting point for previous winners of the bursary as they begin their performing careers.
In celebration of this and the Partnership's general success, YPC & LCoM will present a Jazz and modern music programme which will feature the YPC performing the ever popular 'Mass in Blue' by Will Todd, accompanied by the LCoM Jazz Band and featuring the marvellous voice and stage presence of Laura Barnes (a former LCoM student and Margaret Markland Bursary winner, now making her own successful way as a soloist). The programme also includes 'A Little Jazz Mass' by Bob Chilcott, accompanied by Jazz Trio.
The remainder of the programme will feature and the very best of the LCoM's musicians, soloists, composers and combos in a variety of other items.
Come and experience a really fresh programme and approach to music making and at the same time be one of the first to appreciate the huge well of 'up and coming' musical talent in the LCoM.
