Welcome to Harrogate Choral Society
(HCS) is a
long-established, friendly, mixed-voice choir of around 180 singers,
based in the Spa town of Harrogate. In May 1948 the choir sang
to celebrate the formation
of the Society.
We are particularly
delighted to work with our Music Director, Dr
Andrew Padmore, who joined us in
September 2005. We sing, on
average, four concerts per
season, performed mainly in the
magnificent settings of the Royal Hall, Harrogate, and Ripon
Cathedral. We work with a number of
notable orchestras including Manchester
Camerata. In 2008-2009 we
celebrated our Diamond
Jubilee Season. We hope you will
our website useful and that
the information might interest you in attending one of our
concerts, singing with us or supporting us. If you require any further
of our exciting 2013-2014 Concert Programme are now available.
