New members are welcome to join the East Riding County Choir, a Choral Society with about 100 members drawn mainly from the East Riding of Yorkshire. The Music Director is Paul Dewhurst.

Two performances of four-part SATB classical choral works with orchestral accompaniment are given in Beverley Minster on the first Saturdays in May and December. On alternate years when Handel's Messiah is performed, a Carol concert also takes place  in an East Riding Church by invitation.

Rehearsals take place from September to the beginning of May on Monday evenings at the Hexagon Music Centre, Beverley. 

Please come along to the first rehearsal of the Autumn or Spring terms, dates can be found on the members' information page. Rehearsals start at  7.30 p.m. at The Hexagon Centre, Coltman  Avenue, Beverley HU17 9LP. 

After you have attended three rehearsals, if you wish to become a member of the Choir you will be asked to take a voice check. You should bring a song or hymn to sing with piano accompaniment (please bring a copy for the pianist) and will be asked to sight-read a simple eight-bar melody. The annual subscription is £90
