Now in our 153rd year, the choir is recognised as one of the foremost choirs in the East Midlands and continues to attract new members and audience with our innovative programmes of music, guided with the enthusiasm and exacting standards of our Musical Director, Richard Dacey.
In addition to our regular season of three concerts, over the past ten years we have enjoyed six successful overseas tours, the most recent being a concert exchange with the Marienkantorei choir of Osnabrück, Derby’s twin town in October 2018.
If you are a full time student or 25 and under and pass your audition, you qualify for our choral scholarship, which means your membership fee is covered by the choir. Members aged 26-35 pay half the membership fee. More information can be found on our Join Derby Choral Union page, which includes a handy FAQ answering many questions about joining the choir.
