Harpenden Choral Society aims to “Bring Choral Music to Life” and has an established reputation for high quality performances with professional soloists and orchestras. We give four concerts a year including a carol concert and hold an open workshop or ‘Come and Sing’ event once a year. Most of our concerts are in the Harpenden area. Since our formation in 1975 the choir has grown from strength to strength and our repertoire now includes most of the major choral works as well as some lesser-known works and contemporary pieces.
We are also proud to support a range of local charities with performances and regular retiring collections at many of our concerts.
CHRISTMAS CAROLS FOR CHOIR AND AUDIENCE

Harpenden Choral Society is delighted to present a festive Christmas Carol Concert. Conducted by John Andrews and accompanied by organist Roger Carter, the concert will feature many traditional favourites for both choir and audience. The concert will also include Morten Lauridsen’s O Magnum Mysterium and specially chosen readings from members of the choir.
This year’s appeal and retiring collection will be in aid of OneYMCA. Based in Watford, OneYMCA provide hostels for the homeless in Watford, Welwyn Garden City and Bishops Stortford. They provide up to 500 beds a night together with a variety of associated services such as youth counselling.
