About Durham Choral Society

The Society, born out of association with the Cathedral, has been around in various forms, since 1946.  In that time, we have grown to approximately 150 members, and performed some of the leading choral works of history and of the present day.

Our Musical Director, Mike Summers joined us in September 2012. He and the rest of our musical team do a great job for the society .

We do make the distinction between a Choir, whose remit is essentially to perform works, and a Choral Society which exists to perform certainly, but also to foster the development of choral music in general.
