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.

Under the guidance of our Music Director, Richard Laing, the Choir is now enjoying its168th Season. Our first concert, Autumn Rhapsody, will be performed at the Albert Hall, Nottingham on Saturday 4th November 2023. Our annual performance of Messiah (complete) is on Saturday 2 December and the Family Carol Concert  is on a Sunday this year – 17th December. We were pleased to welcome several new members during the past year and hope to welcome more this coming Season. Tickets are now on sale for our concerts – please see details below.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
