The Lea Singers have chosen to support the Harpenden Trust Christmas Appeal; thank you!
Please buy their calendar - they are unable to perform their usual Christmas concert this year - and help the Harpenden Trust to help the people who need it most this Christmas.
The calendar can be ordered from www.leasingers.co.uk/merrilea
The Lea Singers are a Harpenden-based chamber choir of 30 singers. Their aims are to achieve high standards of singing and performance, and to contribute to the local community.
Their annual programme typically includes 6-8 concerts in the Harpenden area and further afield, a cathedral tour, open singing days and the occasional recording. They rehearse on Wednesday evenings at St George’s School, Harpenden. The choir is known for good music making, varied repertoire including commissions, excellent soloists, interesting concert venues and loyal patronage of a range of local hostelries ….
They come from a wide range of musical backgrounds and have a thriving interns scheme for talented singers from local schools.
Over their 59 year history, the Leas have sung under 12 permanent conductors and many guests, each of whom has made a distinctive contribution to their style and repertoire. In October 2016 they appointed Tori Longdon to take up the baton.
The Lea Singers are a registered charity.
