Welcome to Harrogate Choral Society

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 Mendelssohn's Elijah to celebrate the formation of the Society. Our aim is always to be the finest choir in the area and, under the leadership of our Music Director, Dr Andrew Padmore, we are encouraged and pushed to the highest standards of musical excellence. We sing, on average, four concerts per season, performed mainly in the magnificent setting of The Royal Hall, Harrogate. We work with a number of notable orchestras including Manchester Camerata. We hope you will find 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 information, please contact us.
