We are looking forward to rebuilding and refreshing the choir with our new musical director, Ben Kirk. In particular, under Ben’s leadership, we are on a mission to sing beautiful music from beyond the standard UK choral tradition, as well as some of our audience’s favourite pieces. We start the new season with Brahms Fünf Gesänge, Clara Schumann Drei Gemischte Chöre and Arvo Pärt La Dopo Vittoria.
We are on the lookout for new full-time singers for all parts: perhaps people who have moved to the area and are looking for a high-quality chamber choir, or singers who want to sing interesting music with a small, friendly ensemble.
In particular, we are looking for our next intake of interns. Our interns scheme gives talented young singers the chance to sing with us for a year free of charge, to build their musical experience. Previous interns have joined us during their sixth forms, and before going on to university or music college.
If you are interested in joining The Lea Singers, please email [email protected]. You will be invited to join a couple of rehearsals to see if you like us, before auditioning with our musical director. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings at St George’s School, Harpenden.
