ANDREW YORK, Principal Tenor
A founding member of The King’s Counterpoint, Andrew is thrilled to be back after relocating abroad after our premiere season. Born in Alabama, Andrew has been singing since he was a child. After singing in various church choirs throughout his youth, he began his vocal studies under Christopher Uhl while singing with Musica Sacra (Mobile) and serving as a staff singer at St. Ignatius Catholic Church (Mobile).
At Auburn University, he performed in the Concert Choir, Vocal Chamber Ensemble and the Men’s Chorus, while also serving as a staff tenor at St. Dunstan’s (Auburn). During this time, he met the love of his life and future wife who introduced him to the Cathedral Choir of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral (Columbia, South Carolina), under the direction of Dr. Jared Johnson. He sang with them occasionally, both in Columbia and during a summer residence at Washington National Cathedral.
After graduation, he spent a season with the Huntsville Community Chorus Association prior to coming to the Lowcountry in 2007.
When he arrived in Charleston, Andrew performed with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra Chorus and Chamber Singers under Dr. Robert Taylor, having the honor of singing under the late David Stahl in performances of Carmina Burana and the 2008 revival of Bernstein’s Candide. He also served at St. Philip’s Church and performed with the Charleston Men’s Chorus, under Ricard Bordas.
After his first season with The King’s Counterpoint, he relocated to Germany. There, he toured with Philharmonia Chor Stuttgart, under Prof. Johannes Knecht. He sang on the critically-acclaimed “De angelis” - Engelchöre program, selected for performance at the 2017 Deutsches Chorfest. With them, he also sang on the Württembergische Philharmonie Reutlingen’s performance of Mendelssohn’s Elias (Elijah) and Stuttgarter Kammerorchester’s performance of Mozart’s Requiem. Before returning to the Lowcountry he joined Bachchor Stuttgart on Andrea Bocelli’s 2019 Germany tour.
A husband, father, and engineer by day, Andrew is proud to entertain audiences as a part of The King’s Counterpoint
