Founded in September 2017, we are one of Music Durham’s newest ensembles, specialising in the field of close harmony barbershop singing. We have had a very exciting debut year, and we are looking forward to what the future will hold for the society. After our 2017 Christmas Concert, Music Durham’s reviewer stated that ‘Full Score have great potential this year and going to be a hot ticket for future concerts’. Moreover, in June 2017 we were delighted to be announced as the winners of the ‘Best Music Society’ category in the Palatinate Music and Theatre Awards.

We are an auditioned SATB barbershop choir of up to 24 members, who rehearse once a week on a Tuseday evening. We aim to put on at least one solo concert every term, providing a range of performance opportunities for members of the choir, as well as collaborative performances with other groups and gigs throughout the year.

We are most importantly a group that prides itself on its warm and welcoming members. Our social element is extremely important to us. With frequent varying types of social planned for the next academic year, we seek to become not just a choir of high-level singers and performers but a group of friends.

Additionally, we are far more than just a University society and we pride ourselves on contributing to our local community. We work alongside the charity Dash, which provides supported and unsupported housing to single people who are homeless or are about to become homeless, and have raised money for this amazing cause.

This year, we are planning even more amazing and wonderful things! From busking in Durham town centre to a Full Score tour abroad, there is plenty for members to get involved with!
