KoolGigs Family Concert

Pirates and Princesses

"Pirates and Princesses" returns on 19th March, with more musical mayhem from our pirates - and will also feature local young soloists.

About KoolGigs

Following a successful pilot concert in April 2016, KoolGigs are returning to present a new series of interactive family concerts at St James the Greater, running from October to March. An off-shoot of the popular BabyGigs series, these concerts are aimed at the whole family and also feature young, local performers; however the emphasis is still on a relaxed atmosphere that focuses on children.

Founder Eleanor Hodgkinson is keen to bring classical music to everyone, in an enjoyable way as possible. The concerts are given by some of the UK's leading professional musicians, all highly experienced in performing to a wide age range: expect audience participation, games, dancing and much more... or just come along and listen!

Each concert starts at 3pm and lasts no longer than 1 hour. There is comfy floor seating in addition to chairs, and all ages are welcome. Refreshments are kindly provided by the church, with donations to the choir's fund.

Programme to be confirmed


The NYCGB Fellowship Programme is vital in enabling the most talented and motivated young singers to fulfil their potential and develop into artists capable of entering the music profession at the highest level. Nicholas Sears, Head of Vocal Studies, Royal College of Music.

Launched in 2015 by the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, the NYCGB Fellowship Programme is a major new initiative which aims to create the most highly skilled and multi-talented choral singers in the UK. Each year, eight singers aged 22-25 selected at open audition benefit from a unique 50-day professional training programme designed to develop outstanding skills in performance, education and leadership. Fellowship holders are supported by generous individual bursary awards.

Highlights of the 2015-16 Fellowship Programme included performances at the Royal Albert Hall, the Aldeburgh Easter and Christmas Festivals, Cheltenham Festival, King's College, Cambridge, Royal Concert Hall Nottingham, tours to Malta and China, masterclasses and mentoring from Harry Christophers, James Gilchrist, Kitty Whately and Roland Wood, leading workshops at the Royal Northern College of Music, Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, and Cornwall Music Education Hub, broadcasts and recordings for the BBC and NYCGB's own digital record label, and professional seminars on audition technique, stagecraft, self-employed finances and marketing.

The 2016-17 Fellowship Programme features a range of new opportunities including education work with children in Nottinghamshire and County Durham, a residency and concert performance of Handel's 'Messiah' at Snape Maltings, self-devised singing workshops with primary schools around the UK, recording sessions with Tenebrae vocal consort, a performance with The King's Singers, teaching and mentoring on NYCGB residential courses, and multitrack video recording experience with YouTube musician James Rose.

The NYCGB Fellowship Programme is principally supported by ABRSM and Dunard Fund, with additional support from the Royal Albert Hall, the D'Oyly Carte Foundation, NM Rothschild & Sons, the Ofenheim Trust, the Stanley Picker Trust, the Garrick Charitable Trust, the Fidelio Trust, and I Fagiolini Charitable Trust.

We are delighted to able to welcome this year's Fellowship to Leicester - following a successful visit by last years' Octet

There will be a cash bar open from 6.30pm.
