A Typical Year

The Haverhill Singers usually present 2 main concerts each year, one in the spring and one in December. Our principal concert venue is the Old Independent Church in Haverhill.

For full details of where and when we rehearse see the ‘Come and Join Us’ tab.

We rehearse weekly starting in January for the spring concert and the beginning of September for the December one. Additional concerts are also held sometimes. This year, 2017, we have hosted a visit by a choir from France in return for a visit we made to them in 2016.

At Christmas we sing Carols and Christmas music at various venues in and around Haverhill, recently St. Nicholas Hospice Care, Ickworth House and Costa Coffee. As part of our involvement with the community we performed at a local Womens Instituteʼs anniversary celebrations and we also join with the Haverhill Operatic Society and Haverhill Silver Band at their popular “Carols for All” concert.

From time to time we take part in “come & sing” events which on one very special occasion included joining 2000 other choristers when we sang Verdiʼs “Requiem” at the Royal Albert Hall!

We also hold various social events during the year and it has become a tradition to celebrate each concert with a meal at a local restaurant.
