Dunsford Singers

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.


Our next concerts will feature Haydn’s Nelson Mass, as well as 
pieces by Handel and Mozart and they will take place on Saturday 6 
June (Kingsteignton Church) and Sunday 14 June (Dunsford 
Church). All proceeds will go to the children’s cancer charity CLIC. If 
you are interested in buying tickets for either of these 
performances, please ring Jane Inwood on 01647 252519.
