We are an amateur chamber choir of about 40 singers, founded in the 1970s in the tradition of other great chamber choirs around the UK.

Our core aim is to put on concerts of largely unaccompanied music, in and around Durham City, 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 are always interested in hearing from experienced singers who share our love of performing a wide variety of unaccompanied music to high standards. 
Find out about rehearsals and auditions.

The generous support of our patrons helps us to offer exciting performance opportunities to young soloists and to work with local schools. Read about our outreach work and how you can support what we do.
