Harborough Singers

Want to get back into singing? The Harborough Singers are keen to hear from you.

The 30-strong local chamber choir have been having a great summer, singing in the Tuscan sun, making glorious music with Great Bowden Camerata, and lolling around in the chairman’s garden with a glass of something cool.

But all that drinking and thinking made them realise that something was missing… more people to share all this with! So, if you love to sing and fancy airing your vocal cords this September, but cannot commit to weekly rehearsals, check them out on their website www.harboroughsingers.com to see if this is the choir for you.

Unique in their practice arrangements, the Harborough Singers aim to meet for a weekend of intensive singing just once a month. They rehearse on a Friday night and continue all day on Saturday, usually at Church Langton Community Hall.

New members tend to have some choral experience and a blending voice. Those aged under 23 will sing for free. Autumn rehearsals started on 2 September for a performance of Brahms Requiem at Lyddington on Bonfire Night, 5 November.The night will, obviously, go out with a bang.
