Founded in 2020, Durham University Keyboard Instrument Society (DUKIS) is Durham’s newest society. We are a friendly environment of people who are passionate about our keyboard instruments; from pianists to organists, accordionists to clavicytheriumists. We aim to provide a social space where otherwise inherently solo musicians can meet, learn, discuss and perform with others!
Throughout the year DUKIS runs a number of events including fortnightly meetups, where everyone can bring a piece to play and discuss, as well as socials, masterclasses, performances and perhaps the odd ‘organ crawl’ around Durham.
We are also able to provide teaching, accompaniment and performance opportunities from Durham’s wider music scene for our members.
DUKIS meets fortnightly on Thursday evenings in the Music Department Concert Room, from 7.30pm – 9.30pm, with other events organised ad hoc.
