“It gives me huge pleasure to be asked to become an Honorary Patron of the Leeds Festival Chorus.  I have huge affection for the City of Leeds – I made my national operatic debut there, I have given many recitals, especially as curator of Leeds Lieder, I have spent many happy months living in various different parts of the city and not forgetting a few nights in Leeds General with a broken wrist.  All happy memories!

None happier, though, than singing with the Festival Chorus in the epic Town Hall.  It is a pleasure to deepen my association with the Chorus and I look forward to extending the greeting in person in the near future.  I send my best wishes for your current season and hope you enjoy many hours of excellent music making.

Roddy Williams”
