Welcome to York Philharmonic Male Voice Choir
The ‘Phil’, as the choir is affectionately known, plays a significant part in the rich musical fabric of York. The choir loves to sing, and the passion, commitment, and continuity that has sustained it since 1925 is very much in evidence today.
Whether your taste is for contemporary or classical, west-end or opera, folk song or spiritual, the wide repertoire will offer entertainment and pleasure. The choir has won competitions and audience acclaim in European venues and in the UK, from the Royal Albert Hall to Village Halls, from Castle Howard to the Castle Museum and from York Minster to a Dales Chapel.
The strength and success of the choir goes beyond the concert platform, and is heightened by the depth of friendship that exists between members, families, friends and sponsors.
Enjoy your visit to our website, and we look forward to seeing you soon at one of our many concerts, and of, hopefully, welcoming you to join us as either a singing member or as a friend.
“There’s sure no passion in the human soul, but finds its food in music”
George Lillo [1693-1739]
