The photo above is evidence of HCS in its first appearance at the Hertford Music Festival which this year was known as the Musical Mystery Tour held on Sunday 24th August, 2014.

The lucky customers of Cafe Rouge and other passers by in Parliament Square were entertained for 30 minutes with a range of pieces including Vivaldi's "Gloria" and Parry's "Jerusalem".

Thanks can go to Festival Director Kev Saunders for the invitation - can HCS come back next year please!

The interloper pictured below in the striped blazer has been identified since the event as a certain Charles Spanner visiting the town from Kent where he is the Director of the Dover Community Youth Choir. Thanks then to Charles for adding "weight" to the choir's rendition of "I vow to thee my country"! Some comment was heard about there being "a spanner in the works".

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For part of our performance we found ourselves singing against the entertaining sound of the Hackney Colliery Brass Band. Some negotiation initiated by one of our choir members (see picture below) resulted in "quality air time" for both sets of participants.
