South Devon Singers

"We are a community choir. No auditions or experience necessary. Very welcoming and friendly."

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

We hope that you will enjoy singing with us. We are very friendly group. There are no auditions and all abilities and levels of experience are welcome. 

Our events

We perform at a hugely varied number of events throughout the year. 

They range from more formal concerts, of which there are two to three each year (or two to three pairs of concerts – we tend to perform the main ones both in the Ivybridge area and in the Teignmouth area), to Christmas gigs in pubs and nursing homes, outdoor events to mark the opening of an orchard or a countryside park, supporting schools, especially Ford Primary School in Plymouth, and many more. 

We make the most of opportunities to sing in unusual places (such as the National Marine Aquarium or the Norman Lockyer Observatory) or places of significance to the music we are performing (such as Launceston Town Hall to mark the centenary of the birth of the Cornish poet Charles Causley).

What We Do

Joining a choir means joining a group of friends. We are particularly interested in welcoming new people, we give lots of help to those who have never been in a choir before. We have a number of people with disabilities in our choirs and are thoughtful in ensuring that locations for our rehearsals and events are disability friendly.

Choirs are very good for people who are struggling with isolation or low mood. As one of our members once said "It's hard to feel miserable when you're singing".

We are always open for new singing members. However,  there is plenty of administration involved in organising choir(s) as active as South Devon Singers. There is a website to maintain, flyers and posters to design, promotion of events to be done, refreshments to be organised and delivered at our events, front of house to manage etc.
