Latest news from Harpenden's leading chamber choir...

New season!

What a way to kick off our 2014-15 season! On Thursday September 11, we opened the Brandenburg Choral Festival’s Autumn programme with the Brandenburg Sinfonia, singing the Vivaldi Gloria at St Martin-in-the-Fields. Having just completed a work-related round-the-world tour, I was in the audience instead of on the stage. It was a real treat to have the chance to listen to the choir, who gave thoroughly stylish performance of a well-loved work.

2014-15 is going to be a vintage season. We’re off to St George’s Windsor in October to sing a weekend of services. We have two concerts in the run up to Christmas – a reflective Advent concert centred around Britten’s Ceremony of Carols on Saturday 6 December, and our traditional Charity Christmas Concert on Tuesday 23 December. Our Spring project is to learn the Mozart Requiem by heart, to give a really dramatic performance of this great work on Saturday 23 March. And, following the success last year of our inaugural Leas Summer Singing Festival, we are going to re-run the festival this year on the weekend of 4th and 5th July.

We hope you will be able to join us. Click here for more details of our 2014-15 programme.
