Mid August already and the Easingwold Singers have not been able to meet since March due to current circumstances regarding Covid-19. We miss the musical and social interaction which we enjoy at a choir as well as not seeing our loyal audience enjoy our music. Regrettably it is still uncertain or unlikely that the choir will be able to resume for rehearsals in September, which means even if we were allowed to gather at a later time, there would not be sufficient time left for us to prepare for our planned December concert namely Beethoven's "Mass in C". Therefore, unless something changes very quickly our December concert will have to be put on hold. We are still hopeful that we may be able to stage a concert in May 2021, John Rutter's "Mass of the Children" and Bob Chilcott's "Little Jazz Mass" as originally planned for May 2020 in conjunction with the Cundall Manor's School Choir. Fingers crossed that this will take place next year but certainly our activities have been well and truly curtailed for 2020.
The Easingwold Singers is a friendly, mixed-voice choral society based in the market town of Easingwold, 13 miles to the north of York with singers from Easingwold, Thirsk and the surrounding villages and towns. The choir consists of around 50 singers comprising sopranos, altos, tenors and basses. We work towards two main concerts a year, in May and December, as well as other performances such as various community events, carol singing engagements etc. New members are always welcome.

We are a registered charity, supporting music in the local community and in particular encouraging young artists with performance opportunities. If you would like to become a sponsor or patron of the choir, please click here.
We look forward to hearing from you, and to singing for (and with) you.
