About this event

After attaining a 1st Class (hons) degree in Anthropology and Sociology from Durham University, Kezia went straight on to do a MA in Music at Birmingham University. She is currently studying with Colette McGahon at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

She has had the opportunity to sing at some amazing venues including Saint Thomas Church (5th Avenue, New York), Symphony Hall (Birmingham), St David’s Hall (Cardiff) and a number of cathedrals such as Southwark, Coventry, and Durham. Recent performances include the roles of Noémie, one of the stepsisters in Massenet’s ‘Cendrillon’ (Cinderella), and First Niece in Britten’s ‘Peter Grimes’, in a selection of Opera Scenes at the RWCMD, as well as recording the role of Eliza in a newly written opera by composer Luciano Williamson.

Colin Druce is an experienced and accomplished concert organist and pianist, renowned for his musicianship, versatility and sight-reading skills. Colin is much in demand as a recitalist, performing regularly at festivals and cultural events both in the UK and abroad, including the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester and at concerts in Budapest and the Czech Republic. He has a busy organ recital schedule and has broadcast for radio and television from venues that include Bristol, Manchester, Chipping Campden, Warwick and Coventry.

Colin is a multi-faceted musician; as well as his concert work, he is Head of Keyboard at Warwick School, a freelance organist, and staff accompanist at Warwick University. He is rehearsal accompanist and repetiteur for both the Royal Leamington Spa Bach Choir and the Warwick and Kenilworth Choral Society. He also takes sectional rehearsals, and occasionally deputises for the conductor.

Colin Druce won the BMI Organ competition and the Ludlow Philharmonic Concerto competition whilst studying at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, and gained the Associate of The Royal College of Music Diploma (ARCM) and the Fellowship of the Royal College of Organists Diploma (FRCO) during his studies there.

Colin had a successful career in church music before becoming freelance, and still plays regularly at St Mary’s Warwick, Coventry Cathedral and Holy Trinity Stratford. Colin has twice played for the International Church Choir Festival at Coventry Cathedral with Sir David Willcocks conducting, and was an adjudicator for the Hong Kong Schools Music Festival, the largest music festival in the world, with over 130,000 entries.

A warm welcome to you all from Leicester Cathedral.

Leicester Cathedral is at the physical heart of our city and county. Our church, built on the site of a Roman temple and dedicated to St Martin of Tours, has been embedded in the public, economic, cultural and religious life of this community since medieval times. Since 1927, as the seat of the Bishop of Leicester, we now gather people together for worship, celebration, lament, debate and service of the poor and vulnerable. We offer hospitality to the wider church, the communities of faith which make up our multicultural society and those who come as visitors to the East Midlands, especially in search of the story of King Richard III.

We have found here that God’s love is liberating, transcending all the barriers that separate us and calling us to be a pilgrim people. We meet Jesus Christ afresh daily as we serve those most in physical or spiritual need. Every day we see that those who come as strangers so often leave as friends.

We are open for worship and visiting most days –  I invite you to come and see and to join with us in this adventure.

The Very Revd David Monteith, Dean of Leicester
