St Helen's Church
Entry is free, with a retiring collection
A concert supporting the Youth music programme at St Helen's, including scholarships, with both church choirs run by Rob Milner (who occasionally sings with Quorum).
We will be raising money for the Church's Youth Music Fund via a retiring collection and refreshments.
Dagnall Street Baptist Church
Celebrating 300 years of a church in Dagnall Street.
Quorum have been invited back again to help celebrate and perform some songs from circa 300 years ago!
A break from our usual routine, we'll be heading back in time to perform some beautiful Baroque and Classical music.
We'll be supporting DSBC's charity partnership through a returing collection and refreshments.
December 14th: Our Christmas concert at Potters Bar United Reformed Church, raising over £350 for DiPPs for James. Singing “On Christmas Night” by Bob Chilcott was a new challenge for us, with some quirky time signatures and clashing harmonies. Very enjoyable night with great hospitality.
September 9th: A small group of singers from Dagnall Street Baptist Church gathered together to perform at the opening of the Cross Street Centre, and 30 years later, we were back at Dagnall Street Baptist Church to help them celebrate their (and our) anniversary.
July 13th: Another ‘African concert’ at Lourdes Hall, Harpenden. This time around, it was in collaboration with Harpenden Spotlight on Africa (HSoA). With audience participation, colourful tops, an African style meal and borrowing a percussionist (Tim), a change of style for us. Raising a huge £1,240, it was a very successful, relaxed and colourful evening.
March 30th: “Songs of Peace, Love and Praise” at Dagnall Street Baptist Church, joined by Alla Kravchuk Alban (soprano) and Christopher Gould (piano), who were both spectacular. Raising over £1000 for the church’s Christian Aid project fund for children affected by HIV/AIDs in Kenya. (which ends up being over £21000 once matched by USAid!)
December 15th: Singing our annual Christmas concert at St Martin, Shenley (with mince pies and mulled wine!) raising £410 for the church and for Unicef.
December 8th & 22nd: Aiding Rennie Grove Hospice Care’s fundraising efforts at Sainsbury’s in London Colney and singing for shoppers at Christopher Place, St Albans. A fantastic hour of carol singing both days, contributing to over £1,100 raised at Sainsbury’s, and over £300 at Christopher Place. Festive generosity very clear.
July 7th: Returning to Dagnall Street Baptist Church, St Albans, to perform our ‘Under African Skies’ Summer concert. Raising £480 for the chosen charity, with a further £8000+ added by USAid matching.
April 8th: Supporting the University of Hertfordshire Events Management students with their afternoon tea at Shendish Manor. We provided entertainment and background music as the guests enjoyed their tea and cake, raising over £500 for Herts Young Homeless.
February 22nd: Perfomring at the 35th Anniversary celebration of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, enjoying the surroundings and atmosphere of the historic St Albans Cathedral and Abbey Church (and enjoying all the working dogs in the audience!)
Quorum have regularly held concerts throughout the years in and around Hertfordshire. We usually perform 3 concerts a year.
We’ve been hosted by wonderful locations, such as:
All of our concerts are for charity, and we have raised money for many important charities and causes over the years.
Our 30th Anniversary:
In September 2019, we celebrated our 30th anniversary, and performed in the same way we started – in the Cross Street Cafe at Dagnall Street Baptist Church. Back to where it all began, and with some of the founding members still performing!
Our 25th Anniversary:
One key concert for us was 4th October 2014, when we celebrated our quarter-century anniversary with a concert where it all began – Dagnall Street Baptist Church, St Albans. We were joined by old members, and our esteemed and loved original conductor, Ewart Hopkins, for a concert of old favourites and new music.
