Welcome to Nottingham Harmonic Choir

Haydn The Creation March 2019

A fine performance. The choir was faultless.’

Come & Sing February 2019

‘Everyone was so friendly and helpful, especially the choir volunteers who put in a lot of effort (especially the cakes!) to make the day an enjoyable one. I felt I learned a lot from the conductor and was amazed at the progress we made in just a few hours’

Handel’s Messiah, Dec 18

‘Each year I manage to forget what a sublime piece of music Handel’s Messiah is. Standing in the blast of the Hallelujah chorus never fails to remind me! Bravo, Brava’
