23_24 SEASON HFS.jpg
We are pleased to announce our 68th Season starting Sept 2023  running through to April 2024.

The July 3rd, 1973 historic concert of the 'leper Messiah'. This was to be David Bowie's last concert with the Ziggy persona and the Spiders from Mars. A great medley of 'Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud'/'All The Young Dudes'/'Oh! You Pretty Things', a Lou Reed cover, and a Rolling Stones cover are but some of the highlights.

Mavka - a soul of the Forest - faces an impossible choice between love and her duty as guardian to the Heart of the Forest, when she falls in love with a human - the talented young musician Lukash. Our story is about the magical power of love. That kind of love that enables human nature to find the magic within and reveals abilities and qualities that empower a person to reach beyond possible and to hold against evil and human vice.

Whilst there is evidence of earlier male voice groups in Harrogate, Harrogate Male Voice Choir as we know it today evolved from the decision, in 1969, of an enthusiastic handful of singers to dedicate themselves to the laudable task of promoting male choral singing in the area and to the raising of funds for deserving causes through public performances.

Fifty years on, the aims of those early pioneers remain as the raison d’etre for some 50 members to rehearse each Tuesday between August and the following June and for a dedicated Musical Director and two accomplished Accompanists to share their professional expertise with a predominantly amateur membership.

In August 1970 600,000 fans flocked to the Isle of Wight to witness the third and final festival to be held on the island. Besides the music, they also got a look at the greed, cynicism and corruption that would plague the music industry for years to come. They also witnessed the final, drugged out performance of Jimi Hendrix in England just two weeks before he would meet a tragic death. When it all was over, the fans view of rock and roll was never the same.

Set at the Newport jazz festival in 1958, this documentary mixes images of water and the town with performers and audience. The film progresses from day to night and from improvisational music to Gospel. It's a concert film that suggests peace and leisure, jazz at a particular time and place.
