Concerts and Events

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. As an associate choir of York Minster, the Chapter House Choir sings occasional services in that magnificent cathedral, which all are welcome to attend.

Our next concert is Carols by Candlelight on Saturday 17th December in York Minster
