Chilcott A Little Jazz Mass
25 February 2017, 7.30pm
Venue: The Royal Hall, Harrogate
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
(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
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
