Harlow Singers

Summer 2024 - A Clothes Line of Songs

Our summer concert in on Sunday 7th July 2024 at St James Church, High Wych Road, High Wych, CM21 0JB. Please arrive at 1pm for pre-concert rehersal. Concert scheduled to start at 3pm. Dress code is different from normal, black bottoms but any block colour shirt/blouse on top. We will not be wearing red scarves or bow-ties.

The prgramme is as follows. I haven't been able to make as many rehersal tracks as I normally would have, but below are what I've done, plus YouTube links for some of the songs. The YouTube version isn't allways exactly the version we are singing, but hopfully it's close enough for you to get a good idea.
