Professor Emeritus of Music David Lowry
and Winthrop graduate and organist Shirley Fishburne established the York County Choral Society in 1981. The two intended for the group to perform choral masterworks with the original accompaniments. Since then, the chorus has numbered more than 50 people and continues to bring in the crowds.

The chorus is under the leadership of Associate Professor of Music Katherine Kinsey.

Tickets are free for Winthrop students with an ID, $5 for all students at the door, $15 for Winthrop faculty with ID and senior citizens 65 and older and $20 for generation admission. They can be purchased at the door or online.
