The start of 2019 has seen the relaunching of local singing group Collavoce into The Collavoce Collective, complete with new branding and logo.Collavoce rehearse each week in the village hall and can be heard singing at weddings, concerts, parties, fund raising events and many other events. They have sung in a wide range of venues from Fountains Abbey to Castle Howard, from Ripon Cathedral to Holy Trinity in York and from Green Hammerton, Whixley and Marton-Cum-Grafton churches to the Tockwith Show.

Under the directorship of Catherine Field-Leather, the 40-strong choir, made up of enthusiastic members of all ages, embraces many musical genres from Bach to Rutter, Sinatra to Sondheim. Classical to musical theatre, it’s probably in their repertoire!
