“The CD arrived yesterday, and I have since listened to it three times – I kid you not.
The items sung are just my type of music and are beautifully performed – straightforward, and without any ‘drama’. The diction is ever so good. Words are clearly distinguishable, whether it is the tenor, baritone or bass Section. Again, just the way I like it.
Well Sport! Harrogate MVC has just gained one more fan - ME.”

Vacancy for the position of Assistant Accompanist.
Harrogate Male Voice Choir is seeking an Assistant Accompanist who will share the accompanying role with the Principal Accompanist, David Mawson; this is a remunerated position. Rehearsals are from 7.30 – 9.30pm on Tuesday evenings in the Woodlands Methodist Church Hall, Wetherby Road, Harrogate, HG2 7SG.
Selection will be through a simple process of (i) a visit by the prospective accompanist to a rehearsal, (ii) an opportunity to accompany the choir for one number (the music for which will have been sent in advance), followed by (iii) a brief discussion with a couple of very friendly committee members. Harrogate MVC wishes to appoint this person as soon as possible.
The choir’s repertoire ranges widely from traditional MVC numbers to songs from shows, folk songs, jazz standards and a growing collection of bespoke arrangements and original compositions written by the Musical Director, Patrick Lee. This year, the choir is also involved in an outreach project, working with two local primary schools.
The choir has some 50 members who work hard to put on approximately 12 concerts or other performances during the season, which runs from late August to June with a short break at Christmas and at Easter.
Further details of the choir can be found at www.harrogatemvc.org.uk., where samples from the choir’s 2015 CD can be heard. Pianists who are interested in joining a warm, welcoming and thriving choir should contact the Secretary, Ian Brocket, at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Musical Director, Patrick Lee, at email@example.com, (attaching a brief CV to the email) or by phone - 07802 716188.
