Cleveland Philharmonic Choir

Quay Lads - Conductor Matt Beckingham

 Quay Lads, the regional choir for boys with unchanged voices, enjoys performances both at home, Sage Gateshead, and further afield with residential trips to London and across the North of England.

Alongside choral performances at Carlisle Cathedral, Sage Gateshead, and Royal Festival Hall, the choir have collaborated with the National Youth Orchestra and National Youth Choir of Scotland as well as with the Boston Children’s Chorus (USA). They perform annually with Royal Northern Sinfonia and have featured in Royal Northern Sinfonia family concerts in Hall One.

WHOOPS - The website is being re-constructed!

Apologies to all our readers.  The US based company which provides web services for Cleveland Philharmonic Choir has had a major crash of its systems (not thought to be Trump or Putin related). It is in the process of restoring all of the websites which it hosts, including ours.  Meanwhile, please keep checking here for news about our rehearsal schedule and our concerts.
