Durham Shores Chorus chartered August 23, 1994, and is comprised of an enthusiastic group of women/other marginalized genders singers varying in age and occupations who come together once a week to fulfill their passion for music, by singing 4-part a capella.
Our repertoire includes a wide range of music and includes selections from broadway, movies, 70's rock, pop, country, and even some classics. We have shared our love of music by performing within the community at a variety of venues ranging from senior's residences to Major League Baseball games. If you or any local organization is interested in booking some musical entertainment, please give us a call.
Being part of a teaching organization, we continually learn through regular practices and scheduled coaching sessions where we bring in top notch coaches to prepare us for upcoming competitions.
Each year, our region, which is comprised of approximately 950 women/other marginalized genders, gather to compete and enjoy a weekend of entertainment barbershop style. Renowned judges give detailed feedback on performances, which, in turn, allows us to focus on individual areas that need fine tuning. Competitions represent exciting opportunities to travel, perform and learn while enjoying a truly bonding experience. As a contestant at this annual event, we've won various awards, most recently bringing home 2nd place medals in our division in 2023.
