About

The St Paulinus Singers are a friendly chamber choir in North Yorkshire. We present three or four concerts each year. The repertoire is very wide, ranging from the sixteenth century to the present day. We want to bring to our audiences the best smaller scale-choral works. In doing this we raise money for local churches and charities.

The choir was originally based in Brafferton, but moved to Ripon in 2007.

We rehearse at St John’s Church, Sharow, near Ripon.

If you would like to find out more about our concerts, or if perhaps you are interested in joining us, please explore the website.

    Hello Fellow Singers,

    My name is Andrew Powell and I am a member of the Reading Phoenix Choir – one of the leading “a cappella” choirs in the country, now enjoying our 42nd season. We are coming to York in April on a short tour and would love to make contact with other choirs in the area to develop links and contacts for the future. We are performing a concert at St Peter’s School in York ( see the details from the School Web site below ) on Saturday evening April 16th and would love to have fellow singers come and see us and meet up with us afterwards. Our repertoire ranges from Bruckner and Tallis through Tippett and Rutter right up to Cole Porter and Coldplay – so whatever your musical tastes we should have something for you to enjoy. You can see us on You Tube to get a flavour of who we are and how we sound.

    Very best wishes

    Andrew Powell

    Reading Phoenix Choir
    St Peter’s School Foundation has great pleasure in announcing that the incredibly talented and award winning Reading Phoenix Choir will be performing at St Peter’s School on Saturday 16th April 2011. The concert, to be held in St Peter’s School Chapel, will begin at 7.30pm and will last until approximately 9.30pm with a 20 minute interval for refreshments.

    The Reading Phoenix Choir, finalists of the BBC Radio 3 Choir of the Year 2010 and winners of the Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Arts and Music Festival 2010, will perform a range of choral classics and contemporary favourites and will be conducted by their highly acclaimed musical director, David Crown.

    Tickets are now available and are free with an out-going collection.

    All money raised will go towards the St Peter’s School Foundation 627 Society Bursary Fund, providing bursary-assisted places for academically gifted children who would thrive at St Peter’s but whose parents would not normally consider applying because of financial restraints.

    Please call in and book your tickets in person or e-mail Sharon Baron on s.baron@st-peters.york.sch.uk For further information please call Sharon on 01904 527322.

  3. SERVICES TO CHOIRS
    To all choir directors, chairs, secretaries, members: –
    “Music Matters” offers two services that have been taken up by a number of choirs and by individuals who sing in choirs.
    • Choral Days, where one of our specialist Choral Directors runs a day for your choir, based on repertoire you are working on, or on new repertoire (your choice) as a means of sharpening choral and vocal skills.

    • Sight Singing workshop days. Often members of choirs are desperate to improve their sight singing skills but there is never time for conductors to include this in the regular rehearsal schedule. One of our expert Music Directors comes and spends a day with the choir (or with members within the choir) working on rhythm and pitch as separate issues, then working on how to combine the two in a much more accurate approach to dealing with reading the intervals and rhythmic detail of a line.

    Both events are designed in such a way as to be informative yet great fun. Many choirs/ choir members have found these days to be encouraging and supportive to the regular work undertaken from week to week and many conductors have valued an outside perspective.
