A Community Choir in the Heart of Dartmoor
The choir focusses on classical choral works, performing a classical concert around Christmas and Easter but it adopts a lighter mix of programme for its summer concert. Check out our Historical Repertoire for a flavour of previous performances. Additional musicians and soloists are arranged for concerts from time to time.
Practices and Concerts
Rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings from 7:30pm to 9.30pm in Endecott House, Chagford. Concerts are generally held in St Michael’s Church, Chagford. Carols are offered at Christmas and we have sung at Bovey Castle Hotel, Gidleigh Park Hotel and as part of the Chagford Christmas market. There is a long break after the Summer Concert.
Chagford Singers rehearsals are relaxed, and (we like to think) good fun! Here’s a recording from a rehearsal for one of our Christmas concerts: the piece is Mack Willberg’s arrangement of Ding Dong Merrily on High…
Choir members pay a subscription (payable monthly, bi-anually or annually). Funds are also raised occasionally from choral workshops, coffee mornings in Endecott House, carol singing and other events.
The choir encourages new membership across the voice and age range and is especially short of tenors. If you are interested in joining the choir, please contact our Secretary, Jan Baker, (Tel: 01647 221363, or email firstname.lastname@example.org) or enquire through Contact Us here.
We greatly appreciate a number of past members and other supporters who enjoy our music and act as Friends of the Chagford Singers. They attend and assist at events, and they sponsor and advise us.
