Hertford’s new chamber choir, set up at the start of this year under the umbrella of Hertford Choral Society (HCS) and led by HCS Musical Director Manvinder Rattan, is now rehearsing monthly with 24 experienced and keen singers.  Manvinder, CEO of the Voices Foundation and an experienced conducting and choral trainer, is very pleased to be up-and-running: I am delighted we’ve set this choir up because it’s bringing together some very strong singers as well as singers with potential. Choirs are teams - we have started getting to know each other as people and musically. It is a very promising start.

HCC’s repertoire will complement that of the large choral works performed by HCS with interesting, challenging pieces suitable for a smaller group of singers. Its music is broad and varied, from early Renaissance to contemporary, sacred and secular, a cappella and accompanied.

An exciting programme of local and overseas engagements is already planned for the next 12 months.  The choir will be available to sing at events, including weddings.

HCC has a small number of vacancies for singers including soprano, alto and tenor voice parts and auditions can be arranged on request.
