'Hardynge is the ancient name for Harpenden, dating from when it was a farming hamlet growing wheat for the nearby manor of Wheathampstead. The choir's name and logo symbolise these enduring connections. The Hardynge Choir started in 1966 and continues to provide a challenging outlet for singers wishing to perform mostly the mainstream Choral Society repertoire. The choir currently has 70 to 80 members. There are no formal individual auditions for entry or ongoing membership. We believe that singing should be taken seriously and worked at hard, but above all it should be fun and open to as many people as possible. Three or four concerts are given each year, usually with professional orchestras and soloists.'

‘HLOS has been staging shows for over 60 years. We are all amateurs who enjoy singing, dancing or acting (or all three!) and we are always keen to welcome new members. As well as those on the stage we also welcome those who would like to help in the many jobs which have to be carried out behind the scenes, and we always acknowledge that those who work with the stage crew as well as the many other behind-the-scenes jobs, are just as important as those on the stage if a show is to be a success.’

'In the 1980s, a group of young men in a Harpenden local put their heads together and decided to sing in harmony. They succeeded. Kings always succeed. Today, we number around thirty, including a healthy regular turnout of twenty plus at weekly rehearsals, plus singouts, concerts, national events and home-and-away do’s with other harmony clubs. Ages range from early twenties to infinity.'

'It all started in 1960 on the 08:20 commuter train from Harpenden to St Pancras, when a chance meeting between music enthusiasts sparked the idea of forming a small four-part choir based in Harpenden. On 21 September 1960 seven singers – two each of sopranos, altos and basses and just one tenor (‘twas ever thus!) – met at the house of Clive Bright, conductor of the Harpenden Salvation Army Band. The Lea Singers were born, named after the river at the heart of the local community ...'
