Dear Harmonic Supporters,

Singing – good for the heart and soul! – This is how the whole choir feels about singing, whether performing at the Royal Concert Hall with nearly 200 voices or gathering in small groups to experience the sheer joy of singing.

We started the 166th Season with the choir recommencing live rehearsals under the guidance of our Music Director, Richard Laing, and we have already welcomed some prospective members to our rehearsals. Our first event of the Season, at which we sang some of the pieces from our previously cancelled Gloria! Majestic Music for Choir and Brass, was very enjoyable. We also held our first ticketed Concert on Saturday 4 December which was an abridged performance of Messiah. 

Our Come & Sing event is planned for Saturday 26 February 2022. We know that many Friends of Harmonic and other supporters look forward to this very special annual event and details are now available on this website. We will also be performing the Verdi Requiem on Saturday 19 March at the Albert Hall, Nottingham. Ticketing information to follow.

We held our first ever virtual Messiah in December 2020. Do take a look at our Gallery of Singers at the event.
