Levens Choir is based in South Cumbria, and has become known for high performance standards and an innovative, wide-ranging repertoire.
The Choir started in the 1970s with a few friends meeting weekly in Levens village school in South Cumbria to indulge their passion for choral music. Since then it has gone from strength to strength under the guidance of its founder and Musical Director, Ian Jones.
There are currently more than 60 singers in the choir, drawn from a wide area of Cumbria and North Lancashire. New members are admitted at the discretion of choral director Ian Jones after an informal audition, which maintains a high calibre of singers.
The Choir has established a reputation for high performance standards and innovative programming. The repertoire, sacred and secular, light and serious, is challenging and ambitious.
Levens Choir has performed to great acclaim in such illustrious venues as St Giles Cathedral Edinburgh, York Minster, Pershore and Tewkesbury Abbeys; and also in Worcester, Ely and Lichfield Cathedrals, as well as in Cumbrian venues such as Kendal Parish Church, Cartmel Priory and Lanercost Priory.
