Welcome to Harlequin Chamber Choir!

Harlequin and Amy

Harlequin in rehearsal, March 2019

Harlequin is a friendly adult mixed voice (SATB) chamber choir founded in September 2013, based in Guildford, Surrey, and directed by Amy Bebbington. We rehearse on Tuesday evenings during school term times from 7.45 to 9.45pm in the main hall of the United Reformed Church in Guildford.

We’re currently looking to recruit a tenor. For more information, please contact our choir manager, Stuart White.

We don’t favour any particular genre of choral music, but sing mainly a cappella choral arrangements. Previously we’ve sung early music, madrigals, gospel, pop, jazz, standards from the Great American Songbook and sacred choral works.

The choir is small but ambitious, and aims for the highest possible standards. All choir members are experienced choral singers: many are music teachers or instrumentalists, while others are ex-choral scholars. Generally, we aim to strike a balance between having fun and achieving choral excellence!

Harlequin is also a registered charity run by a hardworking and enthusiastic team. All members of the choir contribute in the running of the choir, bringing a wide range of skills including concert management, publicity, programme notes and financial management.

We perform several times a year in concerts, charity events, weddings, memorial services, arts festivals, recording sessions and competitions. You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
