We are based in Harrow, Middlesex, and we have about 90 singers under our Conductor and Director of Music, Simon Williams. Our relatively large size means that we can perform most of the ‘major’ choral works, but our repertoire is in fact very wide indeed and covers some of the most beautiful music written over the past seven centuries - including newly commissioned works.
The 2016/2017 Season is a particularly important one for us because it's a triple-celebration year! It's our 80th anniversary, it's Simon's 25th year as our conductor and it's 20 years since we started our highly successful and award-winning Training Choir (Singing for Starters). For a bit more information about all this and how we're celebrating - particularly if you'd like to consider joining either the main choir or the Training Choir and helping us celebrate - please click here.
We perform three concerts each year, using professional orchestras and soloists, in some of the most prestigious concert venues in the area, including the historic Speech Room at Harrow School, St Alban’s Abbey, and the Elliott Hall.
If you would be interested in joining us, we have vacancies in all voice parts and we’re not expecting soloist quality! So if you have a pleasant voice and the ability to sing in tune, please have a look at the join the choir section of this site. But if you feel you would first benefit from some basic tuition or revision in choral singing before applying to join the main choir, then why not consider the Training Choir?
Please have a look at this short video which gives some general information about the choir if you're considering joining us Or if you'd just like to be associated with us, you might care to have a look at our support organisation Friends of Harrow Choral Society
In December 2015 we were featurerd on Radio 3 in their Meet my Choir programme - click here if you'd care to listen to a member's perspective of being in the choir.
