About 'The Phil'
The York Philharmonic Male Voice Choir was founded in 1925, bringing together those who have a shared passion and love of music and singing. 'The Phil', as the choir is affectionately known, plays a significant part in the rich musical fabric of York. The choir boasts some 60 members with a vast mix of ages ranging from 20 to 80.
In 1972, the choir was registered as a charity in a bid to foster public knowledge and appreciation as well supporting other charitable organisations through performances and fundraising.
Whether your taste is for contemporary or classical, west-end or opera, folk song or spiritual, the wide repertoire of music the choir performs will offer both entertainment and pleasure. The choir has won a number of competitions and has had the privilege of playing in renowned venues in the UK and Europe, including the Royal Albert Hall, Castle Howard, the Castle Museum and York Minster.
