The choir looks forward to a return to rehearsing as soon as government regulations permit. Before 2020 the Choir gave five or six concerts every year. As well as promoting its own events, the choir has regularly teamed up with fine venues (e.g. Carols at Croome Church in the National Trust’s Croome Court) and organisations (e.g. Armonico Consort in their performance of ‘Too Hot to Handel’ at Malvern Theatre and the Worcester Early Music Festival, and the English Touring Opera at Malvern Priory). In 2018 the choir visited Mariánské Láznĕ and gave five public performances, as cultural ambassadors to Great Malvern’s twin-town in the Czech Republic.
The Hills Singers perform concerts in support of numerous charitable causes, raising thousands of pounds for them over the years, and sing at wedding celebrations, funerals and memorial services
This well established choir is enthusiastic to explore new events, new venues and new partners, particularly as musical life gradually returns towards the pre-COVID 19 norms.
The current outlook for choral singing during the COVID-19 outbreak is not promising.
