Great Yorkshire Chorus

Contemporary choir based in West Yorkshire

Great Yorkshire Chorus is a contemporary choir that launched in September 2018.

Based in Saltaire, West Yorkshire, we are aspiring to become one of the most innovative and uplifting vocal groups in the region.

We perform a wide range of music including pop, soul, folk, gospel and some popular classics.

Find out how to join us as a choir member. No previous experience is necessary and there are no auditions.

Our rehearsals are within easy reach of Bradford, Leeds and much of West Yorkshire.

Send GYC to the Edinburgh Fringe!

We're going on tour in August and we want it to be affordable for all choir members to participate.

In particular, we will offer partially and fully funded places to those who really need it.


We perform a wide range of music with imagination, innovation and to a high standard. We are always looking for interesting new opportunities.


We are not a stuffy choir! All our rehearsals and events are good humoured and enjoyable. We work hard but don’t take ourselves too seriously!


Friendship and a sense of community is at the heart of our choir family. Our choir is a great place to meet new people and forge lasting friendships. Regular social events are a key part of our calendar.


We work hard to accomplish more than we think we are capable of, as individuals and as a group. We love creating a great shared sense of achievement for our members.


We believe that everyone has a valuable voice so there are no auditions. We want our choir to be accessible to as many people as possible. We seek to create a positive and welcoming culture.
