Harry Whitham RIP

It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of our former chairman, Harry Whitham.

Harry was active and influential in Yorkshire music for many years under the umbrella of Making Music and its predecessor, the NFMS, contributing to the success of many choirs and ensembles in the region.

For us in St Peter's Singers, he was, in the words of Alan Horsey 'a wise, discreet and gracious man whose chairmanship and huge network of musical friends contributed greatly to the stability of the choir and paved the way for the developments that we have seen since. He loved music, especially choral music, and his loss will be deeply felt by very many people.'

Harry was a stickler for doing things right, and a tremendous character, whom we will miss greatly. We extend our sincerest sympathies and condolences to Christine.

The funeral will be held at Leeds Minster and enquiries may be made to John Tempest Funeral Service on 0113 257 0542. Details will be posted on the Leeds Minster website.
