A bit about us

We are a well-established, adult mixed choir, based in Ollerton, Nottinghamshire, singing in a wide range of styles from Renaissance to Contemporary. Our busy schedule includes entertaining for fund raising, weddings, and anniversaries at a variety of venues including churches, village halls, concert halls, and street festivals. Joint concerts with other choirs and instrumental groups are also popular.

The choir was formed in 1978 when people who enjoyed singing in the local church and the Ollerton Operatic Society came together under the leadership of John Catling, the name of the choir being derived from our rehearsal venue, The Dukeries Academy.

Our current Musical Director is Ashley Williams who joined us in April 2016 after serving as a Warrant Officer Band Master with the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines. Our current piano accompanist, Janet Otter, has played for the choir since 2006.

Choir members come from the local community and surrounding towns and villages and you will find us a friendly and supportive group who enjoy rehearsing and performing together.

Weekly Wednesday evening rehearsals take place from 7.30 until 9.15 pm in the Concert Hall at The Dukeries Academy, Ollerton, best accessed via the Leisure Centre entrance and car park. New members are welcome and we currently have vacancies for male voices.

If you are interested in singing with us or to find out more about what we can provide then contact Pauline on 07951609217 or any member of the choir.
