The choir was formed in 1928 by workers of the Synthetic Ammonia plant (hence the name SYNTHONIA) at the ICI works in Billingham and has flourished ever since.
Synthonia Male Voice Choir is one of the oldest male choirs in the area and 2008 marked the 80th Anniversary of the founding of the choir. Our repertoire includes a variety of musical styles, traditional, modern and music from the shows - always popular with audiences.
