2022 at a glance
Our choir has been proactive this past year. We have we have given five concerts’, the last being on the 13th December 2022. Additionally, in April, we competed and performed well in the Eskdale Choir Festival, Whitby.
It has been a milestone year for our choir in as much that we had a joint concert with a lady’s choir from Nottingham called the Lyrical SoNGbirds. This was the first time Harrogate Male Voice Choir had performed in the same concert with a lady’s choir. Similarly, it was the first time that Lyrical SoNGbirds had sung outside their hometown, Nottingham. It was a most enjoyable and successful event which took place at the West Park United Reformed Church, Victoria Avenueand was in aid of Saint Michaels Hospice, Harrogate. We raised a total of £654 for the Hospice.
Our association with The Lyrical SoNGbirds was forged during ‘Lockdown’ when their Musical Director, Ian Watts invited members of HMVC to join Carlton Male Voice Choir (he is also their Musical Director) on their ZOOM sessions, during those difficult times – evidence of the wonderful fellowship within the choral community, where distance has no bounds.
Including the amount raised for Saint Michael’s, a total of £3,492 was raised for various charitable organisations in the year.
HARROGATE MALE VOICE CHOIR IS CONSTANTLY IN RECRUITMENT MODE AND WOULD WELCOME ANY GENTLEMAN WHO ENJOYS SINGING AND WOULD LIKE TO JOIN US AT WOODLANDS METHODIST CHURCH HALL, WETHERBY ROAD, HG2 7SG.
