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.
LATEST: Our next appearance is a contribution to a concert by the Norwegian male voice choir Olavs Menn on Saturday 28 October (note early start time of 5.00pm) at St Mary's Church, Andover.
This is the site where Olav Tryggvason was converted to Christianity in the year 994. Olav was King of Norway from 995 to 1000 and played an important role in the conversion of Norway to Christianity.
Olavs Menn will be travelling to the UK specifically to sing in Andover, on the sacred site which holds such special significance for them.
Their programme for this concert will display the breadth of their repertoire, while the Harmonium Singers will perform Norwegian and English music. The two choirs will also sing some pieces together. It will be an evening to remember. Admission is free, with a retiring collection. See promotional video here.
The Harmonium Singers
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.
