'The British Music Society of York is not quite what the name might lead you to think. It is simply an organisation which, as its core activity, stages six chamber music concerts per year, its season running from October to March. For historical reasons, however, it still has more the structure of a music society: its subscribers are called members, and the Society's committee and officers are appointed at an AGM, held in May or June.'

’Founded in 1898, the York Symphony Orchestra is the city’s oldest amateur orchestra. Its aim is to give amateur musicians in York and the surrounding area the opportunity to rehearse and perform works from the orchestral repertoire. It is particularly keen to encourage younger players, and many of its soloists are young musicians with links to York. The orchestra meets weekly for rehearsals and gives three concerts each year, in November/December, March, and June/July.‘

'York is full of church buildings, many as old, or even older than ours. Our congregation is highly eclectic with some travelling considerable distances because they enjoy the English Missal. Our main Sung Mass is at 5.30pm, do come and join us when you next visit this fine city. There is also a Low Mass at 10.30am ... At many of the major festivals, we have the privilege of welcoming some of the region’s excellent independent choirs. On such occasions, the choir will sing a choral mass setting and appropriate anthems ...  The church boasts an excellent two-manual pipe organ, built in 1996 by Principal Pipe Organs ... Every summer, the church hosts a series of organ recitals.'

'The music performed within the Minster comes from a wide and varied repertoire, from performances of some of the earliest music recorded to modern popular, within the liturgy and in concerts ... Over the year, York Minster’s musicians have not only performed some of the finest repertoire from past centuries, they have also commissioned and performed new works. Former Minster organists have contributed widely to the repertoire of Anglican choral music, most notably Tertius Noble, Sir Edward Bairstow, Francis Jackson and Philip Moore.'
