Leeds Musical Theatre Choir
WHO ARE WE?
Leeds Musical Theatre Choir is a choir based in the heart of Leeds that specialises in teaching you how to sing in a choir whilst performing songs from everyone's favourite musicals from stage and screen. Whilst the choir has high standards and great pride in the quality of the sound it makes it welcomes new members regardless of their musical experience. At Leeds Musical Theatre Choir you will learn how to sing using proper technique, read sheet music and sing as part of a huge ensemble whilst meeting lots of like minded people.
The choir was founded by, 'award winning' musical director and arranger, Robert Sanders (BA Hons Music) & Sophie Massa (BA Hons Musical Theatre, PGCE) in 2020, opening it's doors to the public in February 2022. Both Robert and Sophie have many years of experience working in education and Musical Theatre.
Despite being a relatively 'new' choir LMTC has grown in size and now has over 300 members. In its first year LMTC performed 3 sell out performances at Yeadon Town Hall and in 2023 they went on to perform hugely successful concerts at the spectacular Huddersfield Town Hall & St George's Hall (Bradford).
In 2024 the choir will return these venues for another 2 sensational concerts in June and Decmeber where they will be showcasing all the music they have learnt throughout the year.
We'd love to have you onbaord with us for this magical journey but the popularity of the choir has meant that currently we are at full capacity.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY
What I love about Leeds Musical Theatre Choir is that they actually teach you how to sing properly and how to read sheet music! I never thought I would be able to read sheet music but here I am! Singing in a choir that always sing in 5 part harmony! It's wonderful!!
