Harrow Harmony’s Summer Concert – June 27, 2015

harrow_harmony_choirHarrow Harmony would like to announce details of its Summer Concert 2015 which will include the return of brass ensemble Quintabile as guest performers

Harrow Harmony is a 55 strong amateur, non-auditioning mixed voices choir based in South Harrow. It was formed in September 1999 and as part of its 15th Anniversary celebrations this year, Harrow Harmony has commissioned a new piece of music, which has been composed by Philip Lawson, former member of the Grammy Award-winning vocal group The King’s Singers. This follows on from Philip’s arrangements of three north-east-England folk songs, which were also specially commissioned to commemorate the choir’s 10th Anniversary in 2009. The new piece is entitled Sing We And Chant It and has lyrics taken from various Elizabethan madrigals including Now Is The Month Of Maying and Sing We And Chant It, both with original melodies by Thomas Morley (1557 – 1602) and celebrates the joy of singing. The piece received its world première at our Spring Concert in March in Northwood and the choir will be performing this piece again at our Summer Concert. This commission is dedicated to Heather Lee, a former choir member who sadly passed away in July 2009.

Our Summer Concert is the third in our anniversary year, and our final concert of the year in the Harrow area. As well as Sing We And Chant It the concert programme will contain music by many other modern composers including Howard Goodall, Take That and Carole King. It will also feature Eric Whitacre’s The Seal Lullaby and a new arrangement of the hymn How Can I Keep From Singing?, made popular by Irish singer Enya. We will end each half of the concert with a medley of songs as a tribute to the Everly Brothers and The Beatles respectively. Harrow Harmony is a registered charity in England No. 1128233 http://www.harrowharmony.co.uk/ enquiries@harrowharmony.co.uk

Our accompanist will be Mayumi Iida (Stone).

We are also delighted to welcome back by popular demand award winning brass quintet Quintabile as our guest performers, who also performed at our 2013 Summer Concert.
