Singing is fun
Choral singing is good fun, relaxing and stress-busting. Singing in York Minster is a real privilege for Vale of York Voices; one that cannot be over-valued. To be there hearing the sound you are partly responsible for is something very special and something that is difficult to achieve and experience any other way. Do consider joining us!
