We see ourselves as Hertford’s town choir and, in consequence, value and benefit from partnerships and associations with a number of organisations with whom we have shared or aligned interests, or with whom we can work to achieve some greater benefit.

Highlighted below are some of our present partnerships and associations;  we are always open to new approaches and ideas.  Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like to talk to us about partnership.



Hertford Choral Society was unable to rehearse and perform for this concert planned for 27th March 2021 due to Covid-19 restrictions. However, the opportunity to illustrate the works that would have been performed was opened to members of both Hertford Art Society and the choir. These resulting pieces indicate the music inspiring their artwork.
