We are not taking bookings for our concerts while the progress of the current coronavirus outbreak remains uncertain, but Coronavirus has not silenced us. We are rehearsing online and planning exciting concerts and projects. We look forward to bringing you the very best in choral singing when it is deemed safe for people to gather together and enjoy music again. Check our website regularly for the latest news, or sign-up for our newsletter and we will email you when bookings open for our next concert.
Looking forward, we are always keen to hear from new singers and are now offering the opportunity to audition online.
Stop Press: We are delighted to have just recruited our first new bass via an online audition
We are excited to announce that we have commissioned a young Indian-American composer, Shruthi Rajasekar, to create a work for us about politician and poet Sarojini Naidu to mark the 75th anniversary of India’s independence in 2022.
Shruthi Rajasekar talks to David about her Indian and Western musical background and influences and her plans for Sarojini, her new commission from Hertfordshire Chorus.
We’re always looking for good singers to join Hertfordshire Chorus. We will start rehearsing again as soon as it is safe to do so.
Under normal circumstances you would be welcome to attend one of regular rehearsals, followed by an in-person audition with our Music Director, David Temple.
Due to the restrictions of the coronavirus outbreak we are offering the option to audition online from the comfort of your own home using Zoom.
We have singers of all ages, so if you’re looking for a friendly, quality choir and you would like us to tell you when we re-start, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have been privileged to be engaged to perform in some wonderful events over many years, including Wratislavia Cantans – a major international Festival held in the beautiful city of Wroclaw, Poland, where we sang Porgy and Bess under the direction of Wayne Marshall.
Only two weeks later we were back home for the finale concert of the Hatfield House Chamber Music Festival singing Fauré’s Requiem.
Other recent engagements have included War Horse – The Story in Concert in Coventry Cathedral with the BBC Concert Orchestra, Juliet Stevenson, Simon Callow, Mark Stone, conducted by David Charles Abell. The concert was broadcast on Radio 2’s ‘Friday Night is Music Night’.
