Encouraging musical talent
At Arts@Trinity, music lies at the core of our event schedule. We support a number of classical musical groups including the Elmet Sinfonietta (a 50 piece orchestra); we encourage young and aspiring acoustic musicians to run their own gigs; we run our own open mic evenings to encourage new performances by local musicians; and we work with more professional music promoters to support young and aspiring musical talent in Leeds. We also are reviving the Leeds Handel Festival that first took place at Holy Trinity Church in 1727, the year the church was consecrated.
Protecting the future of young musicians
We have strong links to Leeds College of Music and the University of Leeds, who hold some of their concerts and examinations at Holy Trinity Church and also support the Arts@Trinity Flute Choir. Our musicians in residence are Samuel Moore (Flamenco Guitar, Musical Director at Arts@Trinty), Dan Barker-Bey (Saxophone), Jacob Savage (Piano) and Laura Kox (Flute, Musical Director at Arts@Trinity Flute Choir)
