We are excited to announce that we are creating a Youth Choir for singers aged 13-18, to be launched in September 2016.
You will have the opportunity of working with members of the King’s Singers as well as John Rutter and a first-rate, dynamic choral director.

50th Anniversary Season
In December 2015 the Chapter House Choir was 50 years old. Our 50th Anniversary Season is packed with inspirational music, spanning 500 years and several countries. You can find full details in the Concert Diary.
Our 50th Anniversary Celebration Weekend is on 18 and 19 June which will include plenty of choral favourites. If you are a former singer with the Chapter House Choir and we haven’t contacted you already, we would love you to join us for the weekend which includes a concert and service. Please get in touch via the contact us form and we will send you further details.
Looking beyond the 50th Anniversary Season we are thrilled to announce that we will be performing with the world-famous King’s Singers in the Nave of York Minster on Saturday 5 November 2016 along with a specially created Chapter House Youth Choir. We are also delighted that John Rutter will be leading a Come and Sing Day on Saturday 24 September. Join our email list for information plus other offers and news. Our new season brochure will be available in mid-June and will be available here for download.

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.
