About the choir

The Lea Singers are a Harpenden-based chamber choir of 30 singers. Our aims are to achieve high standards of singing and performance, and to contribute to our local community.

Our annual programme typically includes 6-8 concerts in the Harpenden area and further afield, a cathedral tour, open singing days and the occasional recording.

We rehearse on Wednesday evenings at St George’s School, Harpenden. The choir is known for good music making, varied repertoire including commissions, excellent soloists, interesting concert venues and loyal patronage of a range of local hostelries…

Soloists for our next concert

This week our conductor Tori Longdon is auditioning choir members for solo movements, duets and quartets in the two Glorias for the Vivaldi Squared concert on 21 March.

We often feature choir soloists in carol and summer concerts but this is the first time that all the solos will be taken by Lea Singers (past and present).

The virtuosic opening Jubilate will be sung by mezzo Hannah Bennett, who was a Lea Singers intern before studying at the Royal Academy of Music and embarking on her solo career.
