2020/21 Postgraduate Rep- Zachary Kleanthous
My name is Zachary and I’m working towards an MA in Critical and Applied Musicology in what is my fourth year at University of Leeds. During my time here, I’ve been: Workshop and Development Secretary for LUU OperaSoc; conducter of LUUMS Chamber Choir from 2018-2020 and Musical Director of Mack the Knife (LUU OperaSoc). I’m a tenor and continuo player. As a singer, some of my dramatic roles include: Don Curzio (The Marriage of Figaro); Hilarion (Princess Ida); The Defendant (Trial by Jury); Mopsa (The Fairy-Queen); Iro (Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria); Jupiter (Semele); Pirelli (Sweeney Todd) and Centurion (L’enfance du Christ). I am a regular soloist with Leeds Baroque and at the Suffolk Villages Festival. I am also the répétiteur for Leeds Baroque. I have produced editions of music which have been used by: The Parley of Instruments, Leeds Baroque, Colchester Chamber Choir, Cambridge Early Music and the McKinsey Music Festival in Austria. I’m excited to begin my doctoral studies, researching French liturgical practice, here at Leeds in October 2021.
As LUUMS Postgraduate Representative, I’m here to make the society more welcoming for PGT’s and PGR’s by sharing your views with the executive committee at weekly meetings. I’ll also be arranging postgraduate-only socials throughout the year. If you have any suggestions or worries, please email me at:
