The Huddersfield Choral Society was founded in 1836. Under distinguished principal conductors and chorusmasters it has developed an international reputation. Its special quality is the unique ‘Huddersfield Sound’—a full-bodied and blended yet flexible tone. The society promotes its own concert series in Huddersfield Town Hall. Recent invitations to perform outside Huddersfield have ranged from Britten’s War Requiem in Porto and Valladolid, and Vaughan Williams’s A Sea Symphony in Antwerp and the Orkneys, to Havergal Brian’s mammoth Gothic Symphony at the 2011 BBC Proms. In 2012 the society made two appearances at the BBC Proms: Berlioz’s Grande Messe des morts under Thierry Fischer, and a concert with the BBC Concert Orchestra under Keith Lockhart to celebrate seventy years of the BBC radio programme Desert Island Discs.
