For our Christmas concert we welcome LSU Sings, the highly acclaimed Loughborough Student Union Choir. The choir's membership consists of students, staff and members of the public (aged 16+). 

The choir is conducted by Eleanor Graff-Baker who read music at The Queen's College Oxford, where she was a Choral Bursar and a member of Schola Cantorum. The choir's accompanist is Eleonora Babitsky who studied at the Gnessin Music Institute in Moscow. Both have had very accomplished careers.
