Yorkminster Park is synonymous with magnificent music. Whether it’s the choir accompanied by the majestic Casavant organ or the congregation lifting their voices in hymns of praise, vocal and instrumental expressions of faith are integral in the Yorkminster Park experience.
The senior choir, under organist and music director William Maddox, enjoys a reputation as one of the best congregational choirs in the city of Toronto. Yorkminster Park presents a series of free organ recitals at 12:30pm, every Wednesday from September through June, with performers from around the world.
We have a wide variety of unique musical events throughout the year but Yorkminster Park is renowned for its special seasonal concerts. The quality and dedication of the music ministry at YPBC is never more evident than during Advent and Holy Week and these services have become community traditions: “City Carol Sing”, “Carols by Candlelight”, the “Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols”, Passiontide Devotion during Holy Week and traditional Evensong services three times a year.
Our sanctuary is frequently made available to other choral and concert groups, which draw appreciative audiences from all over Southern Ontario.
