Music in Durham

Messiahs in Durham

There are Messiahs of all shapes and sizes coming to Durham this Christmas season – here’s my run-down of what’s on offer.

Durham Vocal Festival: NYCGB Fellowship Octet

A diverse and enjoyable programme, ranging from Monteverdi to Spiderman, by the National Youth Choir of Great Britain Fellowship Octet, at Ushaw College as part of Durham Vocal Festival.

Durham Vocal Festival

The first Durham Vocal Festival starts at the end of January with a week of choral music of all shapes and sizes, from the exquisite close harmony of the King’s Singers to a large scale project from Durham Choral Society, and a chance to hear the recently crowned BBC Choir of the Year, North East Voices of Hope.
