Pauline Gilman joined the company under our former guise of Durham Amateur Operatic Society. She performed mainly in the chorus but did undertake a few small parts. Her children also became keen junior members of the society.
When Pauline passed away in 2017, her husband James wanted to recognise Pauline’s love of music and especially her time with us. The Pauline Gilman Bowl has been set up to honour a devoted member of the chorus.
