Come and Sing ‘Hit’ at Harrogate Ladies’ College
Following the success of Come and Sing events in recent years, Harrogate Ladies’ College invited choral singers from across the region to enjoy an afternoon of singing followed by an evening concert.
Led by the school’s Chapel Choir, who were semi-finalists in last year’s BBC Songs of Praise School Choir of the Year Competition, a selection of choral favourites was sung including the ‘Hallelujah Chorus’, ‘And the Glory of the Lord’ from Handel’s Messiah and the opening movement of Vivaldi’s Gloria.
Kate Morgan, Director of Music at Harrogate Ladies’ College said,
“We love sharing our passion for music with the wider community and were delighted that so many people came along. We were also thrilled to be joined by a former College Head of Choir who sang with our wonderful choir.”

The audience filled the balcony and listened as the choir was joined by a small ensemble of strings, timpani and organ, made up of both staff and pupils, for the final performance in the school Chapel.
A retiring collection was taken after the concert and a total of £600 was raised for Hope and Homes for Children, a small charity that works to find family homes for children in institutional care in Eastern Europe.
