On behalf of the Durham Notables Committee, it is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our friend and Musical Director Judy Scott.
Judy passed away suddenly on January 8th and will be missed by her family and many friends.
Music Director and Accompanist Needed
Due to the sudden passing of our Musical Director, Judy Scott, the Durham Notables are seeking a Music Director for our community choir. Judy started the choir with a vision to encourage interest and participation in choral music and to serve the local community through song and performance. In addition to a music director we are also looking for an Accompanist for rehersals and concerts. Honorariums are offered for both positions.
The choir is made up of 80 members and has been together for 2 years, having performed 3 very successful concerts before Covid forced a pause in operations. The Durham Notables is a non-auditioned choir and many of our members come with a wealth of musical experience and talent. Rehearsals are weekly on Tuesday afternoons in Ajax. There are 2 performances; per year, a Spring concert and a Christmas concert.
If you are intersted in sharing your talents and your love of music and song through leadership and community, or if you know someone who might be interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the 'Contact Us' form durhamnotables.com/contact-us with a copy of your bio. We look forward to hearing from you.
We are monitoring the Covid19 situation closely. While following all rules and guidelines to keep everyone safe and minimize risk, we do hope to resume practices as soon as we are able. We are disappointed that we have not been able to sing together and miss our choir very much. We are looking forward to resuming our joyful song. In the meantime we'd like to wish you all a very happy, healthy New Year.
In the Spirit of Community
The Durham Notables is now a member of the PineRidge Arts Council (known as PRAC)!

In them you will find interesting articles and news about what is happening in the arts scene in Durham Region. The PineRidge Arts Council kindly supported the Durham Notables with a generous start-up donation and has promoted our concerts in their newsletters. We warmly thank them for their support.

In 2017, several talented and musically inclined people talked about starting a new community choir. From that idea in 2017, the Durham Notables Choir was born in August 2018. The Notables have since performed three successful concert events; one in December 2018, one in May 2019 and recently in December 2019.
The Choir is a non-auditioned one which rehearses on Tuesday afternoons. It welcomes all voices. This season there is a particular need for male voices. Basses and tenors are encouraged to join! Reading music isn’t essential but would be considered an asset.
We invite you to join our welcoming and joyful group.
There are no upcoming events right now.
Check in again for more information regarding upcoming concerts. We hope to see you.
