Coronavirus pandemic

We are not taking bookings for our future concerts while the progress of the current coronavirus outbreak remains uncertain. We are doing everything we can however, to ensure that we are ready to bring you the very best in choral singing when people are allowed to gather together to enjoy music again. Please 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.

Nothing beats the exciting sound of live choral music.

Hertfordshire Chorus sound truly wonderful when you hear them perform music the way the composer intended it to be heard – live.
Come and see how that feels at our next concert.

After a short brass fanfare, the choir declare “Behold, the sea itself!”. So begins Vaughan Williams’ A Sea Symphony, which conjures a vision of panoramic horizons and brave voyages, using atmospheric poetry by Walt Whitman. Our combined choirs will bring the drama and poignancy of one of our favourite choral pieces to this performance.

James McCarthy’s Codebreaker was commissioned by Hertfordshire Chorus and is a dramatic, emotional and memorable work about the tragic life of Alan Turing. Turing was famous for breaking the German Enigma code during World War II which may have shortened the war by two years.The libretto for Codebreaker includes some of Turing’s own words as well as some beautifully pointed and moving extracts from the works of Wilfred Owen, Sara Teasdale, Edward Thomas, Robert Burns and Oscar Wilde.

We always have a full and varied programme of concerts. Please sign up for our regular email to receive reminders about our concerts, details of ticket offers and news of other events we are involved with.
