How the choir started:
A chorus of enthusiastic local people was assembled to accompany the actors. Several members of the group enjoyed the experience so much they decided to continue singing in their own right. A choir leader and accompanist were recruited and so the Harrogate Theatre Choir came into existence!
The choir sings a variety of songs from stage and screen and is developing its skills under the leadership of Catherine Field-Leather.
While the choir is continuing to build strong links with Harrogate Theatre, it is keen to find new audiences to entertain. We are open to offers! Available for weddings and special occasions!
The choir are keen to raise funds for local charities including the Harrogate Homeless Project and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
