Have you ever thought of becoming more closely associated with your local choral society? In our Jubilee year we relaunched our Friends scheme, with the intention of encouraging our loyal supporters to become Friends and thereby help to support Harrogate Choral Society put on major works. For an annual amount of £15 for individuals and £20 for households we offer priority booking and a regular newsletter. We also hope that Friends will join us for various social events, where they could meet members and their families, as well as our Music Director, Deputy Music Director and Accompanist. In addition we would greatly appreciate any help Friends could offer in the running of the choral society – such as assisting with teas and coffees at rehearsals, or joining the programme selling team. Finally, we regard the Friends as an important channel of feedback on our concerts, and a source of suggestions for future performances. Friends will be listed in our concert programmes, unless they tell us that they would rather not be. If you're interested in becoming a friend of Harrogate Choral Society, please email the friends secretary.
