Older information (some of this infomration may be out of date)

Dunsford Singers is a non-auditioning choir of approximately 60 members who come mainly from Dunsford and the Teign Valley.

We rehearse on a Monday evening at Dunsford Village Hall and perform concerts at Christmas and in the Summer. Our prime aim is to enjoy making music in a relaxed local setting, and also to enjoy rising to the challenge of tackling a wide range of pieces - in recent years we have sung folk songs, pop songs and classical pieces by composers including Goodall, Rutter, Vaughan-Williams, Vivaldi to the Beatles, Jimmy Perry and Simon & Garfunkel.

All our concerts are held to raise money for charity (as well as to enjoy our singing and, hopefully, bring entertainment and enjoyment to our audiences, of course!); between December 2013 and December 2014 we raised £1800 for ShelterBox, £1750 for the Exeter cancer charity, FORCE and £1700 for Children's Hospice South West. We sing in four-part (and sometimes six-part) harmony, but you don’t have to be able to read music to join. Currently the choir is fairly full, but if you are interested in finding out more about the choir, please contact Jane Inwood on 01647 252519 – particularly if you are a tenor or a bass, where we still have some spaces.

Past concerts featured Haydn’s Nelson Mass, as well as pieces by Handel and Mozart and have taken at venues such as Kingsteignton Church and Dunsford Church. All proceeds went to the children’s cancer charity CLIC.
