Following Government advice concerning Coronavirus the decision has been taken to close the Choir for the protection of our members and those with whom they may be in contact. Concerts which were scheduled to take place on Saturday 25 April and Saturday 4 July have been cancelled.

As soon as it becomes safe to do so once more, South Devon Choir will be singing again.


South Devon Choir has been singing choral music enthusiastically in this lovely area since the 1870s.

We are a choir of nearly 100 singers and each Thursday we gather at St Pauls Church Hall, Torquay Road, Preston, Paignton to learn works ranging from Bizet’s Te Deum and Handel’s Messiah to Horawitz and Flanders’ Captain Noah and His Floating Zoo and Karl Jenkins The Armed Man.  In fact nearly all the historical oratorios, cantatas and choral works have been performed at concerts as well as 20th century compositions.

    Do you have auditions and is it essential to be able to sight read?
