Chor Semiseria visit Durham

Chor Semiseria, from Durham’s German twin city Tübingen have been visiting this week, meeting local choirs and singing in Durham Cathedral with Cobweb Orchestra and Durham County Youth Orchestra. I met them when they came to a joint rehearsal with Durham Singers, and then heard them in action singing Mozart’s Requiem.
