Halcyon Singers

HPC logo

Welcome to the temporary webpage for the youth choir of Harrogate Choral. We are currently rebuilding the site but hope we can provide enough information here for the time being! If in doubt about anything please get in touch.

The Halcyon Singers was launched on 19 September 2015, with guest conductor John Rutter helping to make the day a not-to-be forgotten experience. It is a choir for young singers from year 8 upwards.

Based in Harrogate with a team of young, enthusiastic but still highly experienced conductors we will introduce you to the enjoyment, discipline and repertoire of choral singing, extending the enviable opportunities already offered by the region's school choirs. You're guaranteed a challenging - and fun - time!

If you love singing, come and sing with other enthusiastic young singers at our rehearsals on Saturday afternoons. If you want to find out what your voice can do, and take your singing to a higher level, such as achieving choral scholarships or becoming a member of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, the Halcyon Singers will give you the help, encouragement and skills you need. Although we would prefer that you have a basic ability to read music you don't need to be a skilled sight-reader as this is one of the skills you will be able to learn and refine under the expert tuition of our conductors.

Interested in joining? Email to find out more. We look forward to seeing you!
