Our education & participation programme

Ex Cathedra runs an extensive education & participation programme, comprising four Academy of Vocal Music choirs for singers aged between 3 and 18, and projects for Music Education Hubs, schools, hospitals and community groups. The work is created and delivered by an award-winning team of Vocal Tutors and accompanists, under the leadership of Director of Education Rebecca Ledgard. All the Vocal Tutors sing with, or have sung with, Ex Cathedra, and amongst the team are qualified teachers, singing teachers, conductors and workshop leaders, with a huge range of skills and experiences in choral work, schools, healthcare and community settings across the UK and internationally.

You lit up the school, not just for the week, but for the entire year.
