We are proud to be a part of our community

I love being part of the choir - I feel a great sense of community and our rehearsals are good fun with lots of laughter as well as hard work - a real tonic

Harmonia Choir member

Harmonia Choir is a community choir in a number of ways. Our members all come from the local area and over time we have become a close group offering friendship and support to each other.  New members are always welcome, and many members say how much singing and performing with the choir means to them. 

 

The majority of our concerts fundraise for local charities, and most of the charities we work with have a personal connection to one or more of our members. Often, the suggestion to work with a new charity comes from a member who has received support and would like to help put something back.

 

We have developed ongoing relationships with a number of these groups, and look forward to working with them again in the future. To see details of past and future concerts, see our events page. 

 

We are also fortunate to have benefitted from local charities and trusts ourselves, and we thank them for their support. 

 

If you would be interested in Harmonia performing at your event, supporting your charity, or would like to sponsor Harmonia, then please get in touch. 

 

At a concert at St.Leonard's Church in Malton the choir supported the work of CAFOD and in particular the village of Puentecitos in El Salvador that St.Leonard's have had links with since 2010. The money raised will help the villagers to become more self sufficient.
