Exeter Choral Society is a friendly non-auditioning, mixed-voice choir; we perform two concerts each year with professional soloists and musicians. We are a registered charity (number 1110060).
The Trustees regret that, in the light of recent Government advice, it is prudent to cancel rehearsals for the rest of term and to postpone our May concert. We hope to be able to pick up where we left off at a later date.
All choir members should have received an email about the update - if you have not had one please check your Spam folder or contact the Secretary, to ensure that she has your correct email address, using the Contact Us form.
In addition, it has been decided that we will collect hired music scores as soon as possible. An email has been circulated to choir members with instructions and guidelines for this. If you have not received this email, please first check your spam folder, and then contact us through the Contact Us form. Many thanks!
