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.

At the time of writing (August 2020) we are taking a short break from the full summer-term programme of ‘virtual’ activities that we completed at the end of July.  These included virtual rehearsals each Monday evening via Zoom, typically with about 60 attendees, coupled with a very successful ‘virtual recordings’ project.  Please follow these links if you’d like to see just a sample of the results:

 

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).

 

If there is no significant change to the current Covid-19 guidelines, we will resume our weekly virtual activities at 8pm on Monday 7th September.  If you would be interested in finding out more with a view to perhaps joining our sessions, please email our chairman, Peter Miller - psmiller@btinternet.com
