Acclaimed for performances and recordings that sparkle with fresh insight and vibrant musicality, The Ebor Singers has earned a reputation as one of the most exciting vocal ensembles in the north of England.
As well as their concert series held in York Minster and churches in the city centre, the choir has performed in festivals in the UK and abroad, has appeared on radio and TV, regularly releases CD recordings and leads education and composition workshops, including the NCEM Young Composers Award.
The choir was founded by their director, Dr Paul Gameson, as part of his ongoing research into French and English vocal music of the seventeenth century, and this repertoire remains a focus of the group. The choir is also committed to the promotion of new music, encouraging young composers to write for voices - notably through the NCEM Young Composers Award - and maintaining strong links with composers.
The choir's ongoing education and outreach work is committed to encouraging and promoting music in schools, in particular generating creative and performance opportunities through singing and composition.
