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 we launched a new Youth Choir for talented singers aged 13-19. In 2016 the young singers worked with a member of The King’s Singers and performed alongside The King’s Singers and The Chapter House Choir in York Minster. They also sang Evensong in Durham Cathedral in the summer and took part in a concert in Ripon Cathedral in November 2017. On March 17th 2018 the choir gave a concert of “Songs of the Sea” in York. The next concert is a liturgical performance of Bach’s St John Passion on Good Friday March 30th at 7:30 pm in Ripon Cathedral.

Join Us

The Youth Choir offers young singers a place to sing choral music to the very highest standard. The choir is a fun and dedicated group of musicians from a wide range of backgrounds who love to sing. Entry to the youth choir is by audition and we are always on the look-out for more young voices. Rehearsals are on Tuesdays 5.30-6.45pm in York City Centre. If you are (or know of) a young singer who would like the opportunity to join a high-quality chamber choir in York, please get in touch by visiting our Youth Choir page and use the Contact button to arrange an audition to join.

2017-2018 Brochure

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 are 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.
