Florence Taylor

Assistant Leader / Deputy Senior Pastoral Care

Florence graduated from Royal Holloway where she gained an honours degree in Music with Italian with a first in vocal performance. In addition to leading choirs in schools, she has worked as a section leader and Senior pastoral carer for the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain and with the Eton Choral Courses. Florence also enjoys a varied performance career, highlights including working as a soloist with Latvian National Opera and Symphony Orchestra, taking on roles for London Festival Opera and working with British Youth Opera. Oratorio work includes Handel’s Messiah, Haydn’s Nelson Mass and Poulenc’s Stabat Mater. Not only did Florence love singing in youth choirs when she was at school, it was an important part of her vocal development so she really enjoys being able to work with young people in the same context.

LYC Assistant Leaders provide pastoral care at all rehearsals and concerts and support the conducting team by leading warm ups and taking sectional rehearsals.
