Forthcoming Concerts

The Chapter House Choir first performed Carols by Candlelight in York Minster in 1965, when the choir was formed to raise funds for the York Minster Appeal. The choir continues to build on its reputation as one of the North of England’s finest chamber choirs, under the leadership of Musical Director Benjamin Morris.

Our next concert will be a gala concert for the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen
in the Nave of York Minster on Saturday 4 June at 7:30pm.

Jubilee Gala Concert

The Nave, York Minster

Directors: Benjamin Morris and Paul Gameson
The Chapter House Choir and the Ebor Singers

Join York Minster’s associate choirs for an evening of breath-taking choral music accompanied by the cathedral’s Grand Organ in celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Ebor Singers and The Chapter House Choir will join with musicians from York Minster for a traditional jubilee celebration with a modern twist in the beautiful setting of the cathedral’s Nave.

The programme will feature popular coronation pieces, including Handel’s Zadok the Priest, alongside music associated with the royal family and York Minster, including pieces by Francis Jackson and Philip Moore.

It will be one of the first concerts to feature York Minster’s newly restored Grand Organ accompanying the choirs, following the instrument’s once-in-a-century refurbishment which was completed last year.
