Our objectives are to be a versatile and fun choir whilst working to improve our vocal skills, expand our musical knowledge and achieve a high standard of ensemble singing.

Mixed-voice choir formed in September 2008 by Sam Abrahams, a semi-pro jazz singer. The ethos of the choir is simple: if you like singing and enjoy having a laugh then this choir is for you. Some members just drop in to get their ‘fix’ or to blow away the cobwebs. Whether it’s weekly, monthly or just when you can, you are always welcome. The repertoire is generally modern with many of Sam’s own arrangements for the group. There are no auditions but there is a requirement for a sense of humour.

Exwick Singers is a community choir for Exwick, Exeter which started in September 2010. It is a fun and sociable group for adults who enjoy singing and like making music with other people. No experience is necessary and you don’t need to be able to read music. From the Beatles to folk music from around the work and from ancient music to new music, the group will sing a bit of everything and something for everyone. You can even suggest your favourite song, if you wish. Singing with other people is great way to meet and get to know your neighbours! Please get in touch for more information.
