On the show today, we heard from Howard Smith of the Harpenden Choral Society. The Harpenden Choral Society has about 80 members and gives four local concerts a year, including a Carol Concert. They rehearse on Tuesdays at 8 pm in the United Reformed Church Hall, Vaughan Road, Harpenden and new members are always welcome! The present Society was formed in 1975, and since then the choir has grown from strength to strength and has a repertoire that includes most of the major choral works.
In recent years the choir has also performed in venues away from Harpenden, including Wells, Bury St Edmunds, Windsor and Stratford-upon-Avon. They have toured in Belgium and Normandy, and have recorded a broadcast for the BBC World Service as part of its series ‘In Praise of God’.
The next concert is called 'Celebrations of the English Court' and is at 7.30pm on the 14th November at Harpenden Methodist Church. For tickets, call 01582 833073 or 01727 837207.
