About the orchestra

A lively and friendly ensemble for classical musicians who are a minimum of grade 6 (strings/brass) and grade 8 (woodwind) standard. The Orchestra brings together people from all over the Yorkshire region who share a love of playing orchestral music, performing four concerts per academic year as part of the Leeds College of Music Concert Season. Running from September - June, the Leodian Concert Orchestra meets for weekly Tuesday evening rehearsals under the leadership of conductor Ben Crick.

Repertoire for the autumn term's Christmas concert includes excerpts from Handel's landmark Oratorio Messiah, alongside excerpts from Franz Lehar's jovial operetta The Merry Widow.  For the November performance, orchestra members will be working on Beethoven's Coriolan Overture  which will be performed alongside a world premiere of A Composite of Decisions, a song cycle based on the poetry of John Donne and composed by Leodian Concert Orchestra conductor Ben Crick.

TASTER SESSION

If you are interested in attending a taster session before committing to the full year, you are welcome to attend the first or second rehearsal of a term free of charge to see if the orchestra is suitable for you. Please email shortcourses@lcm.ac.uk if you would like to attend, and we will let the conductor know to expect you. If you decide to join as a member, the first term will be used to discreetly and informally assess your suitability for the level of the orchestra.
