Award-winning ladies choir Caritas Harmony will be combining a love of music with support for good causes when they sing in Harpenden for the first time next Saturday, July 5.

The 40-strong group will be performing a medley of popular songs from musicals like Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables as well as popular classical pieces in aid of The Hospice of St Francis in Berkhamsted.

And after the success of winning the Luton Choirs Aloud Competition in December, the choir is hoping to fill St Nicholas Church, on Church Green, Harpenden, where the concert kicks off at 7pm.

Caritas chairman Tracey Andrews said: “We’re hoping it’ll be a sell-out. We’ve raised over £130k for our local hospice in Luton over the last 10 years and we have a great affiliation to hospices generally.

“A lot of our members are hugely supportive of the hospice movement. They know someone who has benefitted from hospice care and we’re all conscious of how little Government funding hospices receive.”

Hospice community fundraiser Sarah Ajder added: “I am so pleased that Caritas are helping to raise the profile as well as funds for the Hospice of St Francis in Harpenden, where the hospice sometimes still seems to be a closely guarded secret. This is a great opportunity for the local community to enjoy a varied programme presented by a wonderful choir in a lovely setting.”

Tickets, priced £8, are available from the hospice’s Love to Give shop in Southdown, Harpenden, from Oui Ladies Fashion in Harpenden High Street or from Fay Benning on 01763 853696.

  • I went to listen to the choir yesterday and they were wonderful. Everyone I spoke to after the concert said the same thing. A very well put together programme and I could hear every word which is unusual these days. Well done ladies and good luck.
