Looking to join an excellent chamber choir?  Join Us!

The Chapter House Choir has a long association with York Minster and enjoys a reputation as one of the premier chamber groups in the region. We currently have vacancies for a tenor and a second bass. If you enjoy making music to a high standard we want to hear from you!  Please get in touch and we shall arrange an audition as soon as we can.

Known for our frequent commissions of new music, we have collaborated with Roderick Williams, The King’s Singers, John Rutter, Judith Bingham, Alexander L’Estrange and Lillie Harris in recent times.

The Choir is directed by Benjamin Morris, Assistant Director of Music at York Minster. Rehearsals are weekly on Tuesday nights in central York, between 7:30 and 9:30 pm.  

Singers should possess strong musicianship, sight-reading skills, a sense of humour and delight in new challenges.  To arrange an audition, please contact us using the button below.
