How is Leeds Youth Opera Managed?

The day-to-day running of each production is led by the Production Team, including the professional producer (director) and musical director.

The longer-term governance of Leeds Youth Opera is led by a Board of Trustees, who oversee the key aspects of running a charitable youth-focused arts organisation. We are a dedicated team passionate about using opera, in its many forms, to educate and entertain young people across the Leeds district.

Make-up of the Board of Trustees

The Board is designed to represent the different parts of the Society. It includes parents of existing and past members and ex-members who have returned to pay-back for all that they got from being involved many years ago. Importantly, it also includes people with no direct link to the Society, who provide an objective perspective on why we exist and what we do.

The Board is constructed to include a range of important areas of expertise: legal, accounting, marketing, performance production, etc.

Interested in becoming a board member?

We are always open to new people getting involved, especially those with particular areas of experience and expertise.
