About us

The Darlington Choral Society was born out of the Darlington Choral and Orchestral Association and has existed since the middle of the nineteenth century. In 1970 the choir joined the National Federation of Music Societies, now known as Making Music, and became the Darlington Choral Society. It continues in a fine tradition of performing choral music covering both traditional and modern repertoires. Under the baton of its present Director of Music, Richard Bloodworth, the choir has increased to almost 100 members.

Rehearsals take place on Wednesday evenings at St Cuthbert's Church Hall in Darlington.  The choir presents two main concerts each year, in November and April, with other 'ad hoc' performances during the year for special occasions or events.
