Musical Director: Mary Tyers M.Mus., LRSM
Durham is a thriving and innovative branch, proud of its success in hosting the 2019 SRP Festival at Ushaw College. We rehearse in the centre of Durham on the 1st Saturday of the month from 2-5 in Antioch House, Crossgate. (excluding August in 2020).
Normally there are around 25 players at each session playing everything from sopranino to contrabass and there is the opportunity to change instruments during each session depending on the chosen music.
Mary Tyers, our conductor and chair, skilfully guides us through a wide variety of music and members have the opportunity to conduct if they wish. Each year we invite guest conductors and organise playdays and workshops.
New players are welcome to join or to contact Judith Hills (email: durhamsrporguk (durhamsrporguk) ), the secretary, for further information.
