Fancy singing with a thriving and friendly amateur choir?

Harpenden Choral Society is holding an open rehearsal of Haydn's Creation later this month.

The rehearsal will take place at the United Reformed Church in Vaughan Road, Harpenden, on Tuesday, September 21.

Choir members are delighted to be restarting face-to-face rehearsals after a year of Zoom meetings.

The choir’s musical director, John Andrews, will be conducting the open rehearsal. 

Membership secretary Marion Oxley said: “We are all looking forward to getting back to singing together again and, The Creation, which is so uplifting, is a perfect choice after such a difficult 18 months.

"Anyone wishing to come and join us will receive a warm welcome.”
