2016 yielded a very exciting development for LUCC, with the launch of our sister choir, Cadenza. Cadenza is an auditioned choir of upper voices, with an emphasis on learning and improving sight-reading and all-round musicianship, and the audition looks for potential and willingness to learn. Cadenza is student-led, allowing a raft of musical opportunities for students, including the annual Conducting Scholarship, Accompanist Scholarships, and the opportunity for students to engage in vocal coaching and peer mentoring. All student leaders are able to consult extensively with professional musicians for help and advice, and the new choir will also benefit from regular workshops.
We are currently looking for Conducting Scholars and Accompanist Scholars to lead the choir and continue the good work of our former scholars, Maddie Welland and Tim Shelbourne. If you're a budding musical leader or a keen pianist, please do get in touch via the Contact page to ask for more information or to arrange an audition.
