Leeds Conservatoire is delighted to announce that it has appointed a new Chair to the Board of Directors - Carolyn Lord.

Carolyn, a solicitor, has spent all of her life in Leeds and Yorkshire.

I am looking forward to playing a part in strengthening the prominence of the conservatoire for Leeds on the international stage and supporting the work of its dedicated and creative staff team.”
