Stokesley and District Choral Society was founded in 1971 by John Porter. We are a small, friendly choir, now under the directorship of Jeremy Harbottle, singing for pleasure and to produce two or three concerts a year, which are performed locally in Stokesley. We perform an annual 'Festival of Christmas Music' concert together with children from a local primary school.

Jeremy Harbottle - Conductor
A keen musician from a young age, Jeremy attained grade 8 in piano and cello aged 14, won Darlington/Northallerton Rotary Young Musician Award in 1997, an ATCL Piano Performance Diploma and numerous first prizes in all the local music festivals. He gained his BSc in Chemistry at London's Imperial College and won the Ash Music Scholarship for cello lessons from the Royal College of Music. He returned to Great Ayton in 2004, teaching cello, piano and bass guitar privately and in the Macmillan Academy, and has been Principal Cellist of Cleveland Philharmonic and Cleveland Chamber Orchestras since then. He is also passionate about singing and began his conducting career with the Angrove Singers in 2005, becoming Musical Director of youth theatre group Crash Bang Wallop in 2006.
