Chorus York
It all started four years ago when Chorus York presented its first concert, a program of traditional Christmas music, with arrangements coming from a British heritage. For the next two seasons, the Fall concert revolved around the theme of Top Hats & Tunes, with melodies from the world of musical theatre. In addition to the Fall concert, the last two seasons have included a Valentine’s themed evening in February, a Spring concert in May, and a collaborative concert with the Richmond Hill Philharmonic Orchestra in June. Along with a growth in musical skills, Chorus York also experienced a growth in membership during those years, expanding from a handful of singers to almost 30 members.
 
This season, the group has returned to its roots, with a smaller, focused ensemble of dedicated musicians, who are creating the best sound the choir has produced since its inception. The opening concert for Season Four 2019 is once again a Christmas program, which will set the trend for the next few seasons.
For anyone looking for a musical introduction to the Christmas season, be sure to plan on attending Chorus York’s Celebrate the Season on November 30 at 8 p.m., in Richmond Hill, or in Thornhill at 3 p.m. on December 1st. Further details can be found on the choir website www.chorusyork.ca or by calling 905-884-7922.
