Event: Our Summer Concert 2016
Sunday 26th June 2016 at 7:30pm, St Alban's Parish Church, North Harrow HA2 7PF
We are delighted to be returning to St Alban's Parish Church, North Harrow for our Summer Concert his year. Harrow Choral Society was actually founded by members of St Alban's Parish Church in 1937 and the adjacent Church Hall is our regular Monday evening rehearsal venue - so it's always a great pleasure to be performing in what is very much our 'spiritual home'!
As usual, our Summer Concert is a slightly lighter programme than others that we perform during the year and this year will include: Songs of the Fleet by Stanford; Five Mystical Songs by Vaughan Williams; The Sprig of Thyme by John Rutter; O Sacrum Convivium by Thomas Tallis
