We are an amateur, auditioned chamber choir of about 40 singers, based in Durham. Our core aim is to put on concerts of largely unaccompanied music, in and around Durham, with a repertoire that ranges from the great polyphonic works of the Renaissance through to exciting contemporary music, and to build an enthusiastic audience through imaginative programming and top-quality singing.
We believe in concerts that are designed with rich musical variety, that take the audience on a musical journey. Our concerts try to make the point that sharing live music is still the best experience in music, with programmes that turn choral performance into a musical drama as we weave together works from different periods to tell a story. Preparing and performing these programmes that weave together unaccompanied music from over five centuries is our core activity.
