Congratulations go to Robyn Keech, a member of Leeds Contemporary Singers, who became finalists last Saturday night in the first round of BBC One's new talent show Pitch Battle.

Pitch Battle will see six singing groups of varying sizes and genres battle it out on stage. Each week one choir is chosen to move on to the live final, where the eventual finalists will go head-to-head.

The Leeds Contemporary Singers is a group of musicians who take on ambitious musical arrangements alongside their lecturer Craig Lees who also takes on the role of choirmaster. The 9-piece group bring a diverse mix of styles, and together they create a fresh and unique sound that is solely unique to them.

On Saturday this soul group of musicians came out on top, and were thrilled to gain themselves a spot in the live final where the winners will win £50,000. 

We are delighted to announce that Robyn will soon be working here at the Academy as "RK Music Workshops."  With qualifications in singing and songwriting she has talents that enable her to offer something new and refreshing. She will be bringing innovative music workshops to the Academy, and also working with Care Communities, Care Homes, Nurseries and Playgroups.
