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.
