Friends

Leeds Festival Chorus has an active group of non-singing Friends who further its work and support its charitable aims. They enjoy a special relationship with the Chorus.

Privileges

Friends are entitled to:

  • an advance copy of the annual programme brochure
  • hospitality in the chairman’s bar during intervals of Leeds Town Hall concerts
  • a credit in concert programmes
  • newsletters and other information
  • attend special Friends events
  • invitations to social events with the Chorus
  • observe the Chorus at its regular Wednesday rehearsals.

We are also delighted if Friends volunteer to be concert stewards or help with Chorus fund-raising.
