The Yorkminstrels Show Choir is a dynamic, mixed-voice choir, based in North York, serving the greater Toronto area. It is now the only active part of the group that was, for 50 years, the GTA's largest community musical theatre company - The Yorkminstrels.
The choir was founded in 1974 by several members of the theatre group. Their aim was to bring music into the community and reach new audiences. Over the years, choir membership has grown considerably. The repertoire is extensive, with costumes and choreography having been added to enhance the visual appeal of the concerts. Under the musical direction of Melissa Lauren, The Yorkminstrels Show Choir now performs throughout the greater Toronto area, and would be delighted to sing for you!
