Dear Nottingham Harmonic Supporters,

We were so looking forward to sharing our exciting ‘Seascapes’ concert with you at the Albert Hall in November, but we hope to perform this programme in November 2021. In the meantime, like other choirs, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the rest of our programme for 2020. This would have featured our ever popular annual Messiah and Family Carol Concert, both due to take place at The Royal Concert Hall in December.

We hope to be back in March 2021 at the Albert Hall and at Southwell Minster in May for two beautiful and inspiring concerts, but time will tell and we will keep you posted with up to date news. Our website banner headings feature these concerts together with links to the relevant pages showing more detail.

We rehearse via Zoom each week with our Music Director Richard Laing and we are taking the opportunity to work with Rachel Nicholls, a well respected vocal coach (and a soloist with us on several occasions) to develop and improve our technique, so we will be back even better than before! We are also delighted to welcome a group of new members, so we are confident that we will continue to go from strength to strength in the new year.

UPDATE: Now we are running rehearsals on Zoom, check out our gallery of singers who join us on a Monday night to enjoy singing in the choir.

Remember to follow us on our website www.NottinghamHarmonic.org and on social media:

The music, written between 1905 and 1925 exhibits an enormous range of emotional and spiritual expression.
