Welcome to Harrogate Choral Society
(HCS) is a
long-established, friendly, mixed-voice choir of around 150 singers,
based in the Spa town of Harrogate. In May 1948 the choir sang
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
All are invited to come and sing with us at our first rehearsal of the 2016/17 season. Experience the thrills of singing in a large mixed voice choir with professional soloists and
orchestras! There is no obligation to join, though we hope you will. 7 September 2016, 7.30pm, at Christ
Church, The Stray, Harrogate
