About the Choir

A Community Choir in the Heart of Dartmoor

Focus.  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.

Fund-raising.  Choir members pay a fee either monthly, 6monthly or annually.  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 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.
