A Community Choir in the Heart of Dartmoor

Focus

The choir focuses on modern and classical choral works, historically performing a classical concert around Christmas and Easter.  It tends to choose 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 have generally been held in St Michael’s Church, Chagford, but in 2018 we are also booking the Jubilee Hall in Chagford.  Carols are offered at Christmas and we have sung at Bovey Castle Hotel, Gidleigh Park Hotel and in support of the Chagford Christmas market.  There is a long break  after the Summer Concert.

Fund-raising

Choir members pay a subscription (payable monthly, bi-anually or annually).  In 2018 this is £123pa.  Funds are also raised occasionally from choral workshops, coffee mornings in Endecott House, carol singing and other events.

Membership

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 info@thechagfordsingers.co.uk) or enquire through Contact Us here.

Friends

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.
