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.

A Singing Day with Marcus Farnsworth 

Saturday 10th March 2018

Marcus Farnsworth provided great insight into singing technique, in particular the importance of breathing correctly, posture, relaxation, and pronunciation. It was a challenging day with two works in German and one in Latin so we had the duel challenge of sight reading sacred pieces that most were unfamiliar with whilst harnessing our choral technique.

The day was structured around J.S. Bach’s ‘O Jesu Christ, meins Lebens Licht’ (Lord Jesus Christ my life and life); Brahms ‘Geistliches Lied’, and Edvard Grieg’s ‘Ave Maris stella’ (Hail, bright star of heaven). The day concluded with a short performance of the three works to a small but appreciative audience of friends and family who had come to support the participants.

Our thanks go to accompanist Ed Turner for his accomplished playing, Guy Turner for being Master of Ceremonies, and of course Marcus Farnsworth for a superb signing experience.
