THE York couple behind Millegro, the thriving community choir, are now staging the debut concerts of another choral venture.

Prima Vocal Ensemble was formed in May by musical director Ewa Salecka and pianist Greg Birch, pictured right, and will perform on at 7.30pm on Saturday at Holy Trinity Church, Melrosegate, Heworth.
