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.

The Choir gives three or four concerts each year, often with orchestral accompaniment, our season running from September to June. Two concerts feature great music of the choral repertoire from the baroque to the contemporary, a third being music for the Christmas season and then fourthly a smaller performance in the summer months.
