A local chamber choir of experienced amateur singers based in Andover, Hampshire, UK.
Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you enjoy reading about the choir and its activities, and that you will keep abreast of forthcoming appearances.
NEWS: In December we were delighted to be awarded a cheque for £300 by Waitrose as part of their Community Matters initiative. The money is to help cover our running costs so that any money our audiences pay to hear us sing can go directly to local charitable causes. Pictured below are Bruce Randall (Musical Director), Penny Wood (Co-ordinator) and Harry Brown (Partner Co-ordination Manger at Leckford Estate).
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.
