FUN, PROGRESSIVE, NON-AUDITIONING YORK CHOIR WITH AN ESTABLISHED REPUTATION FOR OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCES & MUSICAL DIVERSITY
The physical & mental health benefits of singing are widely reported but what most our singers are initially struck by is the personal satisfaction and joy of creating music
together in harmony.
With diverse, quality arrangements designed to both entertain and to celebrate the delight of singing itself, your vocal technique will improve as you embrace enthralling material from some familiar - and some more unusual sources.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
7.00PM - 8.30PM
YO23 1WF, York
We rehearse weekly.
The choir has breaks during Summer, Christmas, half term & Easter holidays.
Our versatile style will suit both experienced singers and those new to choral world, looking to try something new.
We'd love to hear from you!
