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 has now completed its 168th Season. And what a splendid way to finish the season as we enjoyed the company of Swiss composer Carl Rütti at our performance of his Requiem at Southwell Minster on 25 May. A truly memorable evening, enjoyed by a large audience, also featuring the much loved Vivaldi Gloria.

We now look forward to an exciting programme for our 169th Season, commencing with Elgar’s masterpiece The Dream of Gerontius on 23 November.

Thank you for your continued support as we strive to uphold the great tradition of live choral music-making. We look forward to seeing you soon.
