We play around 10 concerts per year including outdoor afternoon concerts and indoor evening concerts. We regularly play at Southend Bandstand and Colchester Bandstand and outdoor community and commercial events such as County Shows.
Many of the concerts we play are in aid of local charities and we often perform joint concerts with other local performance groups.
Harmonie are also available for private functions as well. Although based in Rayleigh we travel throughout South Essex.
If you would like to book us to play please email enquiries AT harmonie DOT org DOT uk
