Arts of Breath: Breath in Choral Singing

Durham Singers are an amateur chamber choir of about 40 singers, founded in the 1970s in the tradition of other great chamber choirs around the UK. Their core aim is to put on concerts of largely unaccompanied music, in and around Durham City, with a repertoire that ranges from the great polyphonic works of the Renaissance through to exciting contemporary music, and to build an enthusiastic audience through imaginative programming and top-quality singing.
This is the fourth event in the Arts of Breath series and part of the Durham Vocal Festival.
