Recent Concerts

On 25th June 2022 we gave a Summer Concert with our talented Youth Choir in Boston Spa Parish Church. On 4th June we combined with the Ebor Singers to perform a Jubilee Gala Concert in the Nave of York Minster for the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. It was fantastic to sing rousing coronation music to an almost full nave – thank you for the standing ovations!

In March 2022 The Chapter House Choir performed an exciting a capella programme of Bach and Victoria, and the Chapter House Youth Choir gave their spring concert.
Donations at the two concerts enabled us to send £500 to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal – thank you so much for your generous donations.

In November 2021 we performed Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem together with a new commission Comfort by Lillie Harris in York Minster.
In December 2021 we put on two stunning carol concerts in York with a socially distanced choir.
