HCS Friends play a key role in helping the choir to continue a long-standing and successful tradition of staging live choral music in Hertford. 

An essential ingredient of any HCS concert programme is the recruitment of professional orchestras and musicians of the highest calibre to accompany the choir. The support given by Friends means that we can continue to meet these standards and, where appropriate and possible, ensure the talent is “locally sourced” from the increasingly rich pool of young as well as established musicians in and around East Herts.

The additional benefits of being a Friend of HCS are that you will:
* receive the HCS Newsletter at the beginning of each term to keep you in touch with what’s happening in the Society;
* have the opportunity for advance purchase of concert tickets;
* have your name acknowledged in concert programmes (unless anonymity is requested);
* be invited to share pre-concert refreshments in the Meeting Room of All Saints’ Church;
* have opportunities for involvement, particularly on concert days, acting as stewards or serving interval drinks;
* be most welcome to take part in HCS workshops and our various social activities.

The support we receive from our Friends makes a really big difference. We set no specific donation level - any donation our Friends care to make is welcome, whether it be £3, £30 or £300!

 We offer all HCS Friends the opportunity for acknowledgement on our website, should they wish, and are delighted to count the following amongst our much-valued Friends:

James & Janet Barber Cleone Gardner Ann Poulton
Harold Baynes Chantal Geall Linda Radford
Maureen Bodden Mark & Frances Green Peter Ruffles
Pam Burchett Geoffrey & Avril Harding Liz Sanders
Rosemary Caruana Steve Hemingway Francis & Hazel Spear
Bob Deering Eleanor Jardine Mike Taylor
Judith and Robert Fawcett Carol Lewis Michael & Gillian Thornton
Pam Galloway Gill Pollard
