Welcome to the Northern Spirit Singers’ website!


Northern Spirit Singers was founded in 2000 and rapidly secured its reputation as one of the country’s leading chamber choirs. In 2014, it was named Adult Choir of the Year. The choir performs several a cappella concerts a year in Durham, as well as making a short annual foreign tour.
