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.

 

Although we continued to operate very successfully during the worst of the pandemic, albeit virtually, we are  now very much enjoying the resumption of in-person rehearsals. Here is a SHORT VIDEO from our Music Director, Simon Williams, talking about our recent activities and immediate future. 

 

Our first performance of the new season was on Saturday 16th October and was a short, free concert dedicated to the people of Harrow, and particularly to the members and friends of the choir, whom we lost during the pandemic.  Here is a SHORT EXCERPT.

 

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

 

Meanwhile, if you would like to consider joining us, you are most welcome to come to one of our Monday evening rehearsals – St Alban’s Church Hall, Norwood Drive, HA2 7PF – commencing 7.45 pm.  However, it is essential for the time being that you first make contact with our Membership Secretary so that we will know to expect you and so that you can be made aware of the various Covid-19 protocols and precautions that we still have in place for the time being.  Our Membership Secretary is Olwen Moss - 020 8863 7830 - membership@harrowchoral.org.uk
