The Harrogate Proms – Come and sing!

February 11, 2020


For the last two years, members of the Harrogate Choral Society & Harrogate Symphony Orchestra have been working hard to organise a one off ‘event’ – ‘The Harrogate Proms’. The concert will be held in Harrogate’s prime performing venue, the Convention Centre, on Saturday 27th June and will be compared by the BBC’s very own Harry Gration. The concert has been specially designed to be a wonderful evening of music for the audience whilst including some of the best of all choral music for singers. At the same time, the concert will be raising funds for The Harrogate Hospital & Community Charity and promises to be a truly spectacular event.

Additional singers from other Choral societies across the region have already signed up to create a huge choir under the banner ‘Voices for Harrogate’.

Rehearsals for the event will be on a Wednesday evening and will be supported by the Choral Society and those already signed up to sing, and these will take place after Easter. There will be a joint rehearsal with the HSO at King James’s School on Saturday morning 20th June.

The programme includes a wide variety of music including Orff’s O Fortuna, the Suite from Jenkin’s The armed Man, Grand March from Verdi’s Aida, Handel’s Zadok the Priest, Look at the World by Rutter, the Polovtsian Dances by Borodin and the usual ‘Proms’ favourites including Rule Britannia and the Sea Songs.

To complete this large choir, we need more singers, especially tenors and  basses,  who can preferably read music and would be available to attend a minimum of six rehearsals.

If you are an individual or part of a choir already but would like to sing in this amazing event,  please contact Emma on  emma@harrogatechoral.org.uk. For any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact her on 07935 719996.
