Latest News...the 2016-17 Season brochure is now available
The Chapter House Choir has just celebrated its half century. The choir has been delighting audiences for over 50 years with its eclectic mixture of a cappella and accompanied choral music from across the centuries and around the globe. This season is no exception!
We are thrilled to welcome one of the world’s finest vocal ensembles, The King’s Singers, to York Minster in November to sing with us. The King’s Singers are renowned worldwide for their flawless intonation and timing and invariably perform to capacity audiences. Book your tickets early for this unique event!
By popular demand, we are joined again by the York Railway Institute Band in the Minster in early December, and explore the Renaissance and Monteverdi’s Vespers later in the season. We return to St Michael-le-Belfrey for two Carols By Candlelight concerts and are pleased to be supporting St Peter’s Church in Osmotherley for our summer soirée.
Chapter House Youth Choir
We are excited to announce that we are creating a Youth Choir for singers aged 13-18.
We are really excited to welcome Charlie Gower-Smith as the Musical Director of our newly-formed Chapter House Youth Choir. Charlie is a young, energetic and bubbly choral director who already has a wealth of experience as a singer and conductor. He's recently been working with the Halle Youth Choir and conducts a wide range of choirs and ensembles around Yorkshire. He is MD of the Southbank Singers in York.
Rehearsals are on Tuesdays 5.30-6.45pm in York City Centre working towards the first concert on 5 November in York Minster with the world-famous King’s Singers.
Entry to the youth choir is by audition and we are still looking for entrants - please fill in our contact form selecting ‘Youth Choir’.
We are recruiting...
The Chapter House Choir always welcomes interest from singers in all voice parts to apply to join the choir, and we are particularly seeking basses at this time.
There are also a number of choral bursaries available to promising young choral singers aged 18 to 25.
