Watch the video about HCS singing in lock down – a ‘Pastime with good company’

Having not met since lock down, our amazing Musical Director Peter Asprey has kept us engaged, amused and singing virtually with a wide range of musical activities from usual vocal technique work, to guest interviews with professional singers, to learning new pieces.
From a social point of view, the season concluded with a challenging quiz with questions ranging from ‘which composer died in this way?’ to ‘which choral society member did this?’ to an assessment of our knowledge of Henley (pretty terrible it turns out.)
From a musical point of view, virtual rehearsals culminated in recording ‘Pastime with good company.’ Peter created the recording from over 50 individual tracks sent in by HCS members – a real labour of love.

You can watch the video about it all here

We’ll be singing again and sharing our love of choral music come September whatever happens.
Join us! There are no auditions and you can be sure of a warm welcome on Monday evenings whether in central Henley or via zoom.
