Harlequin is a small, carefully balanced ensemble of around 20 confident choristers who enjoy the challenge of holding a part independently or in a small group.
As well as giving concerts, the choir meticulously rehearses repertoire for high-profile competitions. Based on the border in Cranleigh, between Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire, the choir attracts singers from all three counties.
Members of the choir celebrate their victory in the first round of the Choir Of The Year Competition 2016, Portsmouth heat.
Weekly rehearsals are fast-paced. As well as its own concerts, the mixed-voice ensemble is often booked as a semi-chorus in large-scale choral works, and contributes to the concert programmes of fellow chamber groups. With concerts, competitions, weddings, charity events and recording sessions, Harlequin is a busy choir. Well-deserved chill-out time is reserved for the pub and the traditional after-concert curry.
Harlequin aims to present communicative and engaging concerts of a high standard. The choir presents a hugely diverse range of repertoire throughout the year, singing both unaccompanied and accompanied repertoire, memorised and from score, large-scale works and concerts of individual songs. If it’s good music we will sing it.
