LATEST: The Harmonium Singers recently presented a cheque for £2,150 to the Andover Foodbank. The money was raised at a carol concert in St Mary’s Church and other carol singing last December.

The choir always aims to raise money for local causes, with most if not all concert proceeds going to charity. The cheque was enthusiastically received by Jenny LeLean, Community Manager of the Andover Foodbank, at its premises at St John the Baptist RC church: “We were overwhelmed by the donation received from the Harmonium Singers. It is a fantastic amount and a reflection of their beautiful performance. Financial donations are essential for the foodbank to continue to meet local need so our grateful thanks to the Singers and also to all those that contributed”.

Choir director Bruce Randall added: “This was our most successful concert yet and we’re delighted to have raised so much money for such a great local cause.  In addition to the ticket price, people gave even more in a retiring collection having heard Jenny speak about the work of the Foodbank.  It was a great evening.”

The group was formed originally in 1971 with friends getting together to sing Christmas carols to the accompaniment of an antique portable harmonium.  The instrument itself has long been left behind but the group has gone from strength to strength and established itself as a successful local chamber choir. 

Often singing without accompaniment, the Harmonium Singers specialise in smaller-scale choral repertoire from the 16th century to the present day, both sacred and secular.  Thoughtful sequences of words and music with a particular theme or spiritual dimension have become a feature of programmes.  The group often performs for local community or charity events in and around Andover.
