Welcome to the web pages of the College’s Chapel Choir. We hope that you will be able to find the information you are looking for here, but please feel free to contact us if you have any other queries or comments.
Hatfield Chapel Choir is generally regarded as one of the best choirs in Durham.
The choir sings one regular service per week: Choral Evensong on Tuesday evenings at 5:30 pm. Other special services are held, such as the College’s annual Remembrance Service, Advent and Christmas Carols Services. The choir also regularly sings in Durham Cathedral, as well as other, further-flung, places.
The choir is auditioned at the very beginning of each academic year. If you would like to audition to sing in the choir, please sign up on the audition list. (Details of where the list will be are announced at the beginning of the academic year.)
You are also welcome to sing without audition at the first Evensong of the year, please see the calendar for more details.
Eight choral Scholarships of £100 each are awarded mid-way through Michaelmas Term (and payable in Easter Term). You do not need to apply – the award is made on the basis of commitment, attitude and ability.
