We stage a number of our own concerts each year, so if you would like to listen to Harrogate Theatre Choir, we’d love to see you in the audience! We love performing on stage but, more importantly, we enjoy singing to raise money for our chosen charity of the year.
Harrogate Theatre Choir is also available for hire, either as a full choir or as a small ensemble. For parties, weddings, memorial services or just about any other private function. If you have a business, why not think about booking us for your entertainment at the next corporate function you organise?
Around Christmas, of course, we perform a festive repertoire for all manner of seasonal events. The Harrogate Rotary Club annual dinner, Fountains Abbey Music and Light event, and Knaresborough Christmas Tree Festival, are just a few of our previous Christmas performances.
We released our debut album “BINGE” in October 2020 with half the proceeds donated to Mind in Harrogate District. Listen to tasters of all the album tracks on our CD page.
Listen to two of the tracks in full, accompanied by videos: “Seasons of Love” and “Pie Jesu”.
“Seasons of Love” is a song from the 1996 Broadway musical “Rent”, written and composed by Jonathan Larson. We are known for our close 4-part harmonies and this song showcases them perfectly! Sit back and listen to Harrogate Theatre Choir. The accompanying video gives you a flavour of our recording day!
“Pie Jesu” is probably the most well known section of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Requiem” which premiered in 1985. Harrogate Theatre Choir performed “Pie Jesu” at a concert commemorating the 100 years since the cessation of World War One. The song demonstrates our versatility as a choir and it just had to appear on the album.
In November 2022 we were thrilled to sing at Fountain’s Abbey as part of their “Fountains by Floodlight” series. It was a magical evening, made even more wonderful by a most appreciative audience. Here is a short snippet of our “Phantom of the Opera“ medley which was the perfect choice for such an atmospheric setting.
Our Lockdown Performances
Most of 2020/21 was all about our Self-Isolation Performances! We might not have been able to meet face to face during the lockdown restrictions, but that did not stop us singing! We continued to work on new music together via video call. Through the wonders of technology, we then recorded our solo voices and mixed them together before sharing our songs on social media. You can listen to Harrogate Theatre Choir’s Lockdown repertoire and watch the videos that we created to accompany the songs, on our You Tube channel.
We are definitely a choir for hire! So if you have an event coming up and would like Harrogate Theatre Choir to be part of it, then please contact our Secretary, Sarah Ward, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
