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 start to 2019! 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.
Rehearsals are now underway for our flagship event of the year in Hereford Cathedral on Friday 7 June - Italian Splendour - when the choir will sing Handel's Dixit Dominus and music by Moteverdi and Gabrieli. We are thrilled to be working with professional orchestra Central England Camerata and soloists once again.
