About us



Why Sing....

Singing in a choir is a fantastic and uplifting experience.  Joining a choir to rehearse is a great way of meeting new people who all have the same goal and share in the thrill of making music together. 

Rehearsals and Repertoire

Market Harborough Choral Society meets weekly each Tuesday evening for rehearsals in Market Harborough (mainly during school term time) and perform a very wide repertoire of traditional and modern choral music.  We pride ourselves on being inclusive and welcoming.  We are a non audition choir with over 70 singers of all ages and anyone is welcome, young voices included.

our Musical Director

Regular concerts

We perform four main concerts a year at venues in Market Harborough and also perform in a small choir format for local community and private events.

If you have not heard Market Harborough Choral Society before or you are considering joining a choir, then why not come along to one of our concerts, attend a rehearsal or listen to some of our concert recordings.  We would love to see you - either in our audience or as part of the choir.  There are some recordings accessible on this website.

The choir recently recorded a CD which is now on sale.  For more details and to order copies click here.

Special Events - small choir

We work with a smaller group from the Choir for community and private events.  We can suggest music for your needs.  For more information please click here.

Twinning Holiday

In May 2013 a small group from the choir visited Le Fert√©-sous-Jouarre as part of a Twinning holiday.  For more information on the visit click here.


The Society's history goes back to between the wars; the most recent summary was produced by David Johnson for the 40th anniversary in 2007.  His history may be downloaded from here.
