The planning committee of the York Conference on Church Music would like to invite you to join us on 13th-15th February 2017 in York, UK. This joint venture between the University of York and York Minster seeks to promote and heighten awareness of the academic study, composition, and practical output of church music.

Keynote speakers include Professor Bennett Zon (Durham University), Fr Peter Allan (Principal, Community of the Resurrection), Professor Jonathan Wainwright (University of York), Dr Phillip Cooke (Aberdeen University) and Dr Thomas Hyde (Oxford University), with topics including ‘The theology of Church Music’, ‘Church Music Models for the future’, ‘Girl Choristers’, ‘The Evensong Tradition’, ‘Composition for the Church’ and ‘Worldwide experiences of Church Music’. There will be the opportunity to attend Evensong at York Minster on Monday and Tuesday and to see at close hand the workings of a modern, vibrant choral foundation.
