Latest News from the Chapter House Choir….

The Chapter House Choir has been delighting audiences for over 50 years with a diverse mixture of a cappella and accompanied choral music from across the centuries and around the globe. Our 2017-2018 season was packed with glorious music and marked a new phase in our development as we welcomed our new Musical Director, Benjamin Morris.

Our November concert took us on a spiritual journey through music of prayer, reflection and remembrance spanning several centuries.

At Christmas we were delighted to return to our original home in the Chapter House of York Minster to perform our trademark traditional Carols by Candlelight with special guest conductor Andrew Carter, founder Director of the choir. Read the review here.

We followed Carols by Candlelight with two further Christmas concerts, in St Michael-le-Belfrey Church and the Milton Rooms in Malton.

Our concerts in March and June 2018 at the end of the season formed part of a series of concerts on themes of exile, reconciliation and peace, leading up to the centenary of the end of World War I.
