Chapter House Youth Choir

The Chapter House Choir is committed to inspiring the next generation of choral singers and to mark our 50th anniversary year in 2016 we launched a new Youth Choir for talented singers aged 13-19. The young singers performed alongside The King’s Singers and The Chapter House Choir in York Minster in their first concert!

More recently, the Youth Choir sang Evensong in Selby Abbey on Sunday 24th March and gave a performance of Joseph Horovitz’s Captain Noah and his Floating Zoo and other songs on Saturday 6 July 2019.  They have just performed in November’s Treasures of the Italian Renaissance concert, and in December’s Festival of Carols.
