The Choral Society of Durham has been committed to its mission of providing beautiful, meaningful choral music to our community for over 70 years.  During the 2020-21 season, we will continue seeking ways to engage more broadly with the community through the concerts, rehearsals, and community outreach that we offer. To protect the safety of our audience, singers, and staff, all our events will be in virtual format.

The Choral Society of Durham (NC) is a community choir of 150 dedicated singers from all walks of life. It has been well known since 1949 for singing great choral works with orchestra.
