Durham Dynamics is Durham’s largest a cappella choir, with up to 25 members. We sing everything from upbeat pop tunes to golden oldies, all within a relaxed atmosphere. Joining this choir is an opportunity for people who love to sing to get involved in a choir of a high standard, always working on new and exciting projects, notably the renowned black-tie Castle concert at the end of the year. The highlight of Dynamics is the invaluable opportunity it provides of forming lasting inter-college friendships with like-minded, passionate singers of different academic backgrounds.
Examples of recently performed music include our rendition of Skyfall and Close Every Door in the Gala Theatre with Northern Lights. We’ll be kicking off the 2019/20 year with a funky ABBA Mashup and a The Killers Maship – exciting plans ahead!
Auditions happen in two parts – individual auditions and callbacks. Both are quite chilled and the exec will put you at ease; all you need to do is sign up for a slot at the Freshers’ Fairs, turn up to your assigned slot and sing something you’re comfortable with. For the second round, you will be sorted into a group of four singers with different voice sections and taught a quick arrangement, so we can hear how you sing in a group context. We can’t wait to meet you!
