Organiser

Chapter House Choir, York

Formed in 1965 to raise funds for the York Minster Appeal, the Chapter House Choir continues to build on its reputation as one of the North of England’s finest amateur chamber choirs. We are a progressive and dynamic ensemble that regularly commissions new music and seeks to programme accessible and beautiful yet challenging programmes from the whole range of the choral repertoire.

We have commissioned several new works in recent years, see https://www.chapterhousechoir.org/about/commissions/ for more information.

In 2017 we welcomed our new Musical Director, Benjamin Morris, who is Assistant Director of Music at York Minster.

The Chapter House Choir has always supported choirs and choral singing. The season 2016-2017 began in style in September 2016 with a ‘Come and Sing Day’ led by eminent composer John Rutter. We are delighted to be hosting a second 'Come and Sing Day' led by the renowned composer and former King's Singer Bob Chilcott.

We have also supported the establishment of our new Youth Choir, who performed for the first time with the Kings Singers in York Minster in November 2016.  The Chapter House Youth Choir is progressing well under the expert guidance of Charlie Gower-Smith.
