About Us

The Fisher Singers (formerly St John Fisher High School Community Choir), was formed in September 2003. Our links with the school are still maintained as a member of the Fisher Arts programme. We are a true community choir, and welcome enthusiastic singers of all ages. There are no auditions and members do not need any previous singing experience. All that is required is a desire to sing and explore new music. Throughout the year we perform concerts in a wide range of styles from popular songs from shows to classical pieces.

We rehearse on Monday evenings from 7:00pm during school term dates at St John Fisher Catholic High School in Harrogate.

We look forward to seeing you at our Christmas Concert on Monday 11 December 2017 at 7.30pm at the Cairn Hotel, Ripon Road, Harrogate, HG1 2JD

With special guest soloists Niamh Robinson-Wakefield and Christian Lunn

A Passion For Our Time

We have welcomed Eno Kocu and Philip Wilby as guest conductors as well as a number of professional soloists.

In addition to our major concert programme we also perform a summer concert of “lighter” music, and are involved throughout the year in a number of other events, including charity events and weddings. We have recently sang at Starbeck Methodist Church as part of their winter concert programme.

Recent highlights include joining Masterworks Chorale from Leeds in a trip to Paris where we performed Faure’s Requiem in the Madeleine Church, and singing three Glorias in the Royal Albert Hall with the Really Big Chorus..
