The Choir

Exceptional technique and joyous music-making are the hallmarks of the Exeter Chamber Choir. This choir has a quality of engagement which draws us into the music.

Sidmouth Herald

Exeter Chamber Choir is one of the most versatile and accomplished chamber choirs in the South West, attracting singers from all over Devon. It is a friendly, amateur group, comprising c.40 auditioned singers, and is thriving under the continued directorship of Andrew Daldorph.

The Choir was formed in 1997 from a nucleus of leading Devon based singers previously under the direction of composer-conductor Antony le Fleming.  The Choir specialises in singing a cappella, but also works regularly with instrumentalists, small ensembles and specialist groups including Devon Baroque.

Repertoire is wide-ranging, covering both sacred and secular choral works from the Renaissance to the present day, including new commissions as well as compositions by director Andrew Daldorph.

The Choir performs 6-8 concerts per year at venues across Devon, including Buckfast Abbey and Exeter Cathedral, as well as further afield. Occasionally it meets for special study days or weekend workshops, for the opportunity to focus on style, ensemble and sonority, as well as to enjoy some time to socialise together. A tour to the South of France is in the pipeline. The choir meets in Exeter every Tuesday in term time.
