You are cordially invited to join and sing in the Exeter School Choral Society, 2019.

 Handel Messiah  (conducted by Tina Guthrie)

Poulenc Gloria -   (conducted by Peter Tamblyn)

Exeter Cathedral, 21st March, 2019

The first rehearsal, in Exeter School Music School, is on: Tuesday, 8th January, 4pm – 5.15pm

This year we are trialling a change in the arrangements for Choral Society which we hope will prove more streamlined for guest singers.  We are conscious the requirement to buy 6 tickets was often difficult for our guest singers.  In line with most other Choral Societies in the area, we are moving to a £50 subscription for guest singers for the rehearsals/performance, plus the requirement to please purchase at least 3 tickets.  Working out at less than £4 a rehearsal, and including the opportunity to sing in a chorus with around 240 other people, supported by a full, professional orchestra in the beautiful Exeter Cathedral, we hope you agree the subscription is good value.  We hope that by reducing the ticket purchase requirement to 3, this will be more manageable and achievable.  Of course, do feel free to buy additional tickets as clearly we would like to be singing to a full cathedral.

Please can you indicate your interest in joining us by completing our on-line registration below

Rehearsals are weekly in the Music School from 4-5.15pm. They will be on the following dates:
