A Tradition of Excellence

York Cantores  Chamber Choir

York Cantores, based in York, UK, is a chamber choir of about 24 voices founded in 1993. We perform at least three concerts a year in venues across the city including St Olave's Church, Marygate, the Early Music Centre and York Minster. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings in central York. The choir performs a wide range of music, from Renaissance to modern.
