The Harrogate G&S Society are once again joining up with the B&R Band to put on the ever popular 'Fanfare for Christmas' Concert on Saturday 21st December 2019 at the Royal Hall at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
We would like to expand our choir this year and if you have sung in choirs or are a past member we would like to invite you to join us for this special event.
The Christmas Concert rehearsals are every Monday evening aty 7.30pm at Time Together Time Together (Unit 10, Provincial Works, Laundry Road, The Avenue, Starbeck, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG1 4QE).
Last year we saw an increase in audience size and many warm comments from our audiences. Do join us in making this a continued success and please feel free share to anyone you think might be interested.
WHY NOT JOIN US?
Harrogate Gilbert and Sullivan Society was formed in 1972 by a group of G & S enthusiasts with our first production in Harrogate Theatre in May 1973. The Society has gone from strength to strength over the years and has continued to stage a production each May or June in the same theatre.
Since 1986, in addition to our stage production we have held two Christmas concerts each year in conjunction with the world-famous Brighouse and Rastrick Band.
The Society is committed to the works of Sir W S Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan "in order to foster public knowledge and appreciation of such works by means of public performance". We hold Club Nights on the second Monday of every month, except when a production is imminent.
We welcome new members and patrons – you don’t need to know much about G&S to join…many of us just love the fun, the music and chance to perform at the wonderful Harrogate Theatre. And you don't have to live in the town to be a member. We rehearse on Mondays at 7.30, at Time Together, Starbeck.
