Durham Singers

We are pleased to announce a summer concert performed by the fabulous Durham Singers, who regularly perform at Durham Cathedral. This will be their first concert at The Bowes Museum, in the splendid Picture Galleries. The concert will take place in the early evening, with summer nibbles and drinks.

The Durham Singers were founded in the early 1970s in the tradition of other great chamber choirs around the UK. Their core aim is to put on concerts of largely unaccompanied music and to build an enthusiastic audience through imaginative programming and top quality singing. Julian, the Choirmaster, has already researched and developed our music for this evening’s performance and has chosen French and English pieces.
