about this event


‘Songs of Springtime’

This Spring-inspired programme will delight audiences with an array of well-known choral pieces. Come and join Harlequin Chamber Choir to welcome in the new season with lively madrigals from England, Germany and France. We will also perform some appropriately fitting folk tunes and partsongs on the theme of water, the sea and birds, and will finish this enjoyable programme with a smattering of jazzy, up-tempo numbers in what promises to be a really fun and accessible programme for all ages. We are looking forward to this being our first concert under the leadership of our new Music Director Amy Bebbington.
