More About Us

LSC was founded in 2001 by its Music Director Andrew Mellor and a group of 15 talented young singers with Liverpool connections. Specialising in English choral works from the 16th, 17th, 20th and 21st centuries, LSC aims to present great choral music in a plain and unpretentious manner, so that its performance may be seen as an appropriate gesture in contemporary life. Through musical performance and preparation LSC aims to explore the effects of an artistic journey on personal relationships and development; every project is seen as an enriching human experience independent of the packaged artistic product, though not irrespective of it.

As LSC enters its sixth year in 2007, it is still discovering its own capabilities in terms of general outlook and positioning; performance format; repertoire; public support and the logistics of UK and international touring. LSC currently aims to present two projects per year - a weekend residency somewhere in the UK in the winter and a week-long tour in the UK or abroad each summer. So far, LSC has performed in Norfolk, Merseyside, Cambridgeshire, Surrey, Kent, Devon, Cornwall, Northumbria, County Durham and London and recently made its debut foreign tour to Riga in Latvia. The group has broadcast on BBC radio and worked on performance projects with The National Trust, Cambridge University and Channel Four Television.

Without support from generous charitable organisations and sponsors LSC would not exist. The group is particularly grateful to The John Lewis Partnership for its ongoing support of UK activities and running costs; to the Albert Cooper Music Charitable Trust for its support of this website; and to The Hemby Trust for its major support of our tour to Riga.
