NORTH HERTS GUILD OF SINGERS
We are a happy and successful choir which has been going strong for more than 50 years. Based in Hitchin, we are one of the best-known and best-supported choirs in the area.
We have lots lined up for 2024, but the most exciting thing is that we are to sing the Bach mass in B minor in the spring. In March 2020 we were all but ready to perform this amazing work when we had to cancel, with less than a week to go. Sadly, many things were cancelled for everyone, but we are now really looking forward to having another go. Four years on it's likely that our MD, Harry Bradford, will have some new ideas as to how he wants the performance, which will be interesting... Soloists will be Emilia Bertolini (soprano), Hera Protopapas (mezzo), Simon Carter (tenor) and Daniel Vening (bass), and we look forward to welcoming back our friends, the period baroque orchestra, Musica Donum Dei, who were due to play for us in 2020.
