We are recruiting…
The Chapter House Choir always welcomes interest from singers in all voice parts to apply to join the choir. There are specific vacancies for tenors and basses at this time.
There is also a limited number of choral bursaries (one per voice part) available to promising young choral singers aged 18 to 25 in full time education.
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, in the Chapter House of York Minster
The Youth Choir is currently recruiting new members. If you know any singers aged 13-19 who would like to audition, please get in touch by visiting our Youth Choir web page and use the Contact button to arrange an audition to join.
