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.

Short Concert for a Summer's Day
Over the past two years, we have concluded our singing year with a short, informal lunch-time concert in St Mary's Parish Church, Newark. We have enjoyed beautiful weather on both occasions and have attracted tourists and Saturday shoppers as well as regular supporters of the choir. Last year we performed alongside other choirs and ensembles as part of the Byron Festival. This year the choir will give its own concert of English folk songs, including a selection from John Rutter's Sprig of Thyme. This will take place on Saturday 6th July 2109 at 11.30am and will last for approximately 45 minutes. Guy Turner will conduct and Edward Turner will accompany.
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.
