Thanks to everyone who gave so generously and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

A superb evening of glorious music filled All Saints Church on 7th November 2015. We were delighted to see so many friends, family and Hertford residents in the audience.

In the words of one audience member.... "I can't begin to tell you how much we enjoyed "The Messiah" last night. I thought it was a really wonderful and moving experience. Thrilling!"

HCS was proud to sponsor the Hertford Museum's summer exhibition 'Beautiful Noise'  which explored the diverse musical heritage of our county town and surrounding villages.  Covering 300 years of musical history, visitors discovered how we have recorded, performed and listened to music through a mix of collections, oral history recordings and images.

Our own choir history dating back to 1938 is definitely something to be celebrated! We are delighted to be exhibiting a selection from our own valued and extensive archives and there are also oral history recordings from past and present choir members as well as a recorded sample of our musical performance.

We are especially pleased that a small group of 6 HCS singers (plus Derek Harrison as musical accompanist) opened the exhibition's accompanying Saturday afternoon 'Gallery Sounds' sessions of live music, from 2.30pm - 3pm on Saturday 11th July 2015.



Thank you to all those who supported us and the exhibition!
