Hereford Chamber Choir was founded in 1983, and currently consists of around 32 mixed voices. The choir performs about 6 concerts each academic year in venues across Herefordshire, including an annual concert at Hereford Cathedral. We perform a wide variety of music from the choral repertoire, both sacred and secular, ranging from the Renaissance to newly commissioned works. The choir also enjoys singing for services at cathedrals, and has just returned from a weekend singing services at Bristol Cathedral.
Currently we have limited vacancies. However, our musical director, Simon Harper, is always willing to hear from potential new members who enjoy singing choral music to a high standard. We rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 7.15 – 9.15pm at Holy Trinity Church, Whitecross Road, Hereford. An informal audition with the musical director will take place after attendance at a couple of rehearsals.
Hereford Chamber Choir has had a very busy 2019 so far! A successful Choral Workshop in February was followed by the first annual event of the newly formed Friends of Hereford Chamber Choir. The Dean of Hereford Cathedral provided effortless entertainment from his memoirs, and £700 was raised for the choir.
Singing services at Bristol Cathedral during the last weekend in February was a musical and social success. The premiere of composer Edward Pullin's responses was a particular highlight.
Our flagship concert of the year - Italian Splendour - took place on 7 June as the choir were joined in Hereford Cathedral by the Central England Camerata and soloists as they performed the best of Italian Baroque including Handel's Dixit Dominus and music by Monteverdi and Gabrieli. It was an outstanding concert, and many thanks to the hundreds who turned out, and to the Friends of Hereford Cathedral who helped to support the evening.
