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 enjoying its 168th Season. Following a busy Autumn schedule – no less than three concerts over a period of seven weeks – our annual ‘Come and Sing’ day on 17 February attracted nearly 120 singers who enjoyed rehearsing and performing a choral arrangement of Elgar’s Sea Pictures.

It was an absolute pleasure to appear with Sinfonia Viva for a moving performance of Fauré’s Requiem as part of their Nottingham Classics concert on 23 March at the Royal Concert Hall, under the baton of Natalie Murray Beale.

To end our season we’ll be returning to Southwell Minster on 25 May to perform Swiss composer Carl Rütti’s Requiem and Vivaldi’s Gloria. We hope you can join us to hear this wonderful music in a sublime setting.

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