Welcome to the Harleston Choral Society Website
Our Spring Term began on 8 January, but it’s not too late to join us as we rehearse Saint–Saëns Requiem and Dvořák Mass in D Major for our Summer Concert on 29 June 2024. No auditions, and music is provided free. Practices are on Monday evenings 7.30 pm- 9.30 pm, in The London Road Church, Harleston IP20 9BH. Parking available in The Original Factory Shop (TOFS), almost opposite the church. Come and join us, especially if you’re a potential tenor, alto or bass – our choir needs you !
Further details about the choir are in the Location and Contact and About Us sections of the website, or from Stella Brownsea at firstname.lastname@example.org
Choral Singing For All Workshop
An exciting new venture was led by our musical director to enhance our knowledge and enjoyment of music and singing. A workshop for choir members and non-members, experienced or not took place on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th August 10am to 4pm at St James Village Hall and was enjoyed by all.
The workshop included an introduction to music with Justin and Karen. Fun instruction to reading and understanding music – 1000 years condensed into 2 hours! and a session on vocal technique for choral singers with Justin and Karen, using the opening number from Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana. On Sunday Justin and Karen led a come and sing session looking at ‘Glow’ by Eric Whiteacre. A delicious soup and roll lunch was served by Julia Awty and her team.
Our 2024 Workshop will be on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th August.
