HRH The Prince of Wales Visit

We are delighted to announce that Prince Charles will be visiting Durham to hear a concert featuring our Orchestral Society, Choral Society and Chamber Choir. The concert will celebrate the life and works of Parry including his iconic 'I Was Glad' and 'Jerusalem' as well as some lesser known works. The concert forms part of a wider visit to Durham including officially opening Durham Cathedral's Open Treasure exhibition and a visit to the Durham Light Infantry Collection Gallery. If you would like to read more about the royal visit, you can find the Music Durham blog here!:
