Bingham and District Choral Society was founded in 1972.
We are a mixed, friendly, soprano, alto, tenor and bass (SATB) choir of about 90 people. We hold no auditions but achieve a high standard for our three concerts each year.
We sing in some wonderful locations and often with other choirs.
COME TO A CONCERT
Our interactive archive of programmes and posters, for the concerts we have performed since 1972, enables you to search for music from the Renaissance, Classical, Romantic, Baroque, and Post 1900 periods, as well as Christmas Carol concerts. You can also see the venues and collaborations with other choral groups.

SING WITH US
We sing three concerts in each season, which starts in September.
We don't hold auditions – if you can read music it will make it easier for you, but we welcome anyone who is keen to sing! Experience the joy of singing with Bingham Choral by watching our video below.
