Two contrasting but equally exciting pieces! Carmina Burana is full of life, anger, splendidly earthy desires, parody and lusty enjoyment of life. A Little Jazz Mass is a modern, original and effective concert setting of the Latin Missa brevis in which the various movements embrace a variety of jazz styles.

Welcome to Harrogate Choral Society

Harrogate Choral Society (HCS) is a long-established, friendly, mixed-voice choir of around 150 singers, based in the Spa town of Harrogate. In May 1948 the choir sang Mendelssohn's Elijah to celebrate the formation of the Society. Our aim is always to be the finest choir in the area and, under the leadership of our Music Director, Dr Andrew Padmore, we are encouraged and pushed to the highest standards of musical excellence. We sing, on average, four concerts per season, performed mainly in the magnificent setting of The Royal Hall, Harrogate. We work with a number of notable orchestras including Manchester Camerata.

'Andrew Padmore had prepared the Choral Society to the highest of standards and they repaid by producing some of the most exciting singing the Society has produced in many months.'
