Our Christmas Celebration Concert

View details of next event »

We are a classical, auditioned choir of about 100 singers based in Harrow, Middlesex. Under our Music Director Simon Williams our repertoire includes works from 6 centuries of composition including the established choral masterpieces, modern works and newly commissioned music. Our President is Dame Emma Kirkby.

We perform 3 or 4 concerts each year with professional orchestras and soloists in some of the most prestigious venues in the area including the Elliott Hall, St Albans Cathedral, Watford Colosseum and the historic Speech Room of Harrow Public School. In addition, we undertake away-days in the UK and short tours to mainland Europe.

Take a look at this flip-book about being in the choir.

We have been operating 'virtually' since the start of the pandemic in March 2020 and regularly have more than 50 members at our Monday evening rehearsals.  In lieu of concerts, we have established a very successful 'virtual recording' project - please follow these links if you’d like to see/hear just a sample of the results:

 

A video of Bryan Kelly's carol This Lovely Lady;

 

A video of Palestrina’s Sicut Cervus;

 

An audio track of the madrigal April is in my mistress’ face;

 

A video of Handel’s And the Glory (from Messiah).

 

 

Although we will be keeping the easing of lockdown restrictions under review, we are currently planning to continue to meet 'virtually' for the remainder of this term but then to commence in-person rehearsals on Monday 6th September.    If you would be interested in finding out more with a view to perhaps joining our remaining virtual sessions, or trying us out in-person in September, please email our chairman, Peter Miller - psmiller@btinternet.com

 

Our Christmas Celebration concert will be on Saturday 18th December in the magnificent and historic Speech Room of Harrow School.  Our Spring concert will be a performance of Handel's Messiah on Saturday 2nd April 2022 - also in the Speech Room.
