Singing Development Leader, Nia Llewelyn Jones

Our first ever Singing Development Leader

Nia Llewelyn Jones grew up in North Wales where singing and choral music played a central part in her musical upbringing. After reading music at Robinson College, Cambridge, she won a full scholarship to study with Simon Halsey on his collaborative course between the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the University of Birmingham. 

Nia has subsequently worked extensively with ensembles of all ages, appearing frequently with the symphonic choruses of the CBSO and London Symphony Orchestra.  She has also been involved in numerous youth and choral education projects, working with The Sage, Gateshead’s Education division, the CBSO’s choral forces, and Learning and Participation department.

Nia was Conductor of the National Youth Choir of Wales in 2015, leading the choir on their tour of Buenos Aires and Patagonia to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the first Welsh settlement. 

Nia is the first to hold the position of Singing Development Leader at Gloucester Cathedral.
