Jane Anthony

In Memoriam: 1952 - 2014

Leeds College of Music were saddened to hear of the passing of colleague Jane Anthony, who died peacefully on the evening of 6 November 2014.

As well as a successful teaching career at Leeds College of Music, Leeds University and Huddersfield University, Jane combined this with concert and opera performances, including many years with Opera North.

Jane’s hard work saw the Leeds Lieder Festival+ in Leeds become a key event in the city’s calendar. She worked tirelessly as a Senior Lecturer at Leeds College of Music, also starting Young Opera Venture in 2011, and used her skills as a soprano to guide many young people through their classical music study.
