Harborough’s famous choir will perform at St Dionysius’ Church
A famous adult chamber choir from Market Harborough is due to perform at St Dionysius’ Church this Saturday evening (June 18).
The Harborough Singers are due to play in the historic church on the town’s High Street after returning from a successful tour of Tuscany in Italy.
The choir will return to sing much closer to home after being brilliantly welcomed by grateful audiences in Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Pistoia.
The choir’s spokesperson, Tim Blades, said: “We were blessed to perform in some of the most glorious buildings imaginable.
“We will certainly remember the acoustics, the artwork and the Italian hospitality with great fondness and the sun and the ice cream for even longer,” Tim joked.
“But we are now really looking forward to performing in front of our audience here in Market Harborough.
The show will feature a wide range of sacred and secular music that the choir recently performed while touring beautiful Tuscany.
The evening at St Dionysius Church will feature the superb Hebrew love songs of Eric Whitacre with violin accompaniment provided by Helena Thomas.
The Harborough Singers will also sing folksongs as well as a selection of sacred choral classics through the ages. The concert starts at 7 p.m.
