Lympstone Entertainments

February 18, 2011 § Leave a comment

Lympstone Entertainments was founded in 2006 by Harland Walshaw and John Welton who believed that there was a thirst for good live entertainment in Lympstone, our East Devon village on the banks of the Exe with its tradition of fishing and farming. They felt that the audiences who flock to the popular amateur productions of the Lympstone Players would also welcome a programme of professional events in the village. Programmes include musical, dramatic, literary, serious and comic events.

La La Lympstone

February 18, 2011 § Leave a comment

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.

Devon Baroque has established a strong reputation as the principal orchestra in the South West specialising in baroque and early classical music, played on period instruments and in appropriate style. The orchestra’s repertoire ranges from Biber to Bach and Boyce with performances in cathedrals, churches, concert halls and small, private venues. It has worked with international soloists such as Emma Kirkby, Michael Chance and Sebastian Comberti and helps to promote young musicians at the start of their careers. In addition to performing from its large repertoire of instrumental music, Devon Baroque collaborates with vocal ensembles and choirs. The size and composition of the orchestra reflects the demands of the repertoire, from a small chamber ensemble to a larger orchestra with wind players.

Devon Baroque promotes understanding of and engagement and active involvement in the world of Baroque music through its education programme, including workshops on Baroque playing style and composer ‘Experience’ weekends at Dartington Hall.
