Durham University Chamber Choir provides a high-quality music-making environment for the best singers in a university which boasts a rich choral tradition. DUCC demands a high level of commitment from its members, who in return benefit from being part of a refined group. Durham University is a university in England. ...


DUCC consists of around 20 singers, and throughout the year performs all types of choral music at concerts and cathedral services, and also embarks on at least one foreign tour, with recent venues including Tuscany, Poland, Dublin, and Paris.


Membership of the choir is by annual audition, which takes place in the first week of the year. In recent years, the choir has performed a great variety of works, from J.S. Bach's 'Singet dem Herrn' to contemporary compositions such as 'The Three Kings' by Jonathon Dove, and Giles Swayne's 'Magnificat'. In 2005 the choir performed a premiere edition of Claudio Monteverdi's Christmas Vespers. For other people named Bach and other meanings of the word, see Bach (disambiguation). ...

The Choir is entirely student-organised, and the post of director is openly auditioned each year. At the same time, the positions of Manager and treasurer are decided, with a social secretary, and a publicity officer elected the following October.


Perhaps the highlight of the Chamber Choir season is the annual 'Music on the River' Concert in the first week of June. The event takes place on the banks of Durham's River Wear, close to the breathtakingly beautiful Prebends Bridge, where audiences gather for a concert of light-hearted summer music, performed by the Chamber Choir from three large rowing boats, backed by the awe-inspiring view along the riverbank of Durham Cathedral and Durham Castle. Durham Cathedral silhouetted against the sunset Durham Cathedral from nearby The Rose Window in the Chapel of the Nine Altars. ... Durham Castle is a Norman castle in the city of Durham in County Durham, England. ...


Ralph Allwood, Precentor at Eton College, Durham Graduate and former Director of DUCC is the choir's Patron. The Kings College of Our Lady of Eton beside Windsor, commonly known as Eton College or just Eton, is an independent school for boys. ...
