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.

Our Next Concert

We hope you will come along to one of our concerts! Our schedule for 2024 includes Bach's B Minor Mass in March, and in July there is Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle - which actually isn't solemn at all, and a delight.




 

'The very first chord the choir sang was electrifying - I knew the concert was going to be thrilling.'
