Liverpool's Innovative Chamber Choir

Level 10 is an innovative chamber choir based in Liverpool

Level 10 was founded by its director James Hawkins, who formed the choir during the Covid pandemic when singing in enclosed spaces was banned. A group of choristers met on Level 10 of a deserted multi-storey car park, sang Handel’s Messiah to the backing of a car stereo, and decided to meet regularly. Covid-safe rehearsals began indoors in Autumn 2021, and the group gave its first public performance in April 2022.

Level 10 is conducted by Lynne Rogers and we aim to challenge the traditional way of presenting classical music by communicating more directly with audiences. Our focus is on contemporary repertoire, and we are pioneers in the staging of immersive soundbaths.

Recent projects have included collaborations with both Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral and with Liverpool Hope University.
