Sing, Joy, Success, Repeat
The 2022-23 season was a brilliant success! We ended our year of song with a sold-out Spring Concert and a standing ovation. It felt great to sing together again after the pandemic and we are so proud of our growth and achievements. Our director Adriaan Bakker and our accompaniest Charles Gerrard were instrumental in facilitating our development and eliciting such beautiful singing from us.
We are eager to continue our joyful song under the guidance and direction of these masterful artists. Go to the About Us tab on the header to learn more about Adriaan and Charles.
OUR CHOIR NEEDS MORE MALE VOICES!
Any bass, tenor or baritone voices out there? We would love to have you sing with us.

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.
