Join Ushaw College’s new choir

Ushaw College is looking for singers to join a new choir based at the college. The choir will revive the college's choral tradition by singing Vespers services in St Cuthbert's Chapel several times a year, as well as giving concerts.

St Cuthbert’s Chapel at Ushaw College is a glorious space to sing in, and when it was built, there would have been several sung services taking place in it every day, as well as in all the smaller chapels around the college. This musical tradition is being renewed with the establishment of a new choir at the college, with an annual programme that will include several services of sung Vespers, performance of a major choral work, and a lighter summer concert.

Following Ushaw’s slogan, the new choir is “open to all” – there will be no auditions and the only requirements for membership is an ability to sing in tune, enthusiasm and commitment. The choir will be run by Alex Chisholm-Loxley, a recent graduate of Leeds College of Music, and Allan Coombes, organist at St Margaret’s Church Durham will accompany.

Rehearsals are on Thursdays from 7.30 – 9.15 pm in the Exhibition Theatre, with a subscription of £2.50 per week. For more information, contact Alex via choir@ushaw.org
