Welcome to Hart and Soul Community Choir!
Hart and Soul Community Choir was formed in Hartwell, and we have been singing together since September 2011. Many original members are still with us, and we regularly have up to 45 voices.
We have since moved to Hanslope Village Hall, meeting every Wednesday night from 7:45-9.30pm during term time. Hanslope is the neighbouring village to Hartwell and the village hall can easily be found using the postcode MK19 7NZ
Everyone is welcome
We welcome anybody who wishes to join us, male and female, all ages, first time singers as well as people with more experience. There are no auditions and you don't have to be able to read music, in fact we often learn pieces by ear. Our evening meetings are a great way to lift your spirits. You’ll enjoy plenty of laughter, be uplifted by the songs and forget all your worries for a little while. Although we are the Hartwell and Hanslope choir, we are delighted to draw members from many surrounding villages, Northampton and Milton Keynes.
We sing a wide variety of musical genres
Our members help to choose the songs we will sing, with guidance from our professional musical director. We learn pieces from a variety of genres including pop, jazz, folk, traditional and gospel. You’ll have the opportunity to perform around three times a year for village events, if you want to, and to have a fantastic time at the annual Community Choirs festival.
Our venue is Covid compliant
Both the choir steering group and the Hanslope Village Hall committee have put in a great deal of work to ensure that our sessions are as safe as they can be, and follow all the government guidance. You are very welcome to drop us a line to find out more about the specific procedures that are now in place.
You'll receive a very warm welcome
So if you enjoy singing and would like to join a very friendly and joyful choir, do come along; the first two weeks are free. If you then decide to join the choir it costs £5 per session paid in advance, half termly. For more information please email us via the contact form, or call Jane on 07811 939566.
