Haraya was officially formed in 2017 and debuted in a sold out concert at St. Peter's Church in Notting Hill. Haraya means "imagination" or "vision" in Tagalog. Haraya recently won the top prize at the Manchester Amateur Choral Competition 2020.

 

Having different professions and backgrounds with singers mostly nurses and staff from the NHS, the members are unified through their shared passion for singing and musical excellence. 

 

The choir has already performed in a number of exciting venues and events which include a concert at St. John's Smith Square, a diplomatic reception at the Langham, a fundraising ball at the Lansdowne Club, as opera chorus in Die Fledermaus at the Wilton's Music Hall and carolling in Trafalgar Square and Soho Square.

The Haraya repertoire includes a wide range of styles, genres and idioms which include sacred, classical, pop, opera, folk and contemporary. We sing our pieces in concert from memory. Haraya also strives to promote Filipino music in their concerts and performances. In terms of discipline and sound, the choir follows the Filipino choral tradition which utilises a homogeneous rich warm tone in vocal production. 

Haraya Choir is a beneficiary of the International Culture & Arts Exchange London (ICAEL).
