Further information:

Also known as Serenade Choir, we are a large and welcoming choir of all ages and abilities – regularly enjoying attendances of 50 plus singers.  We welcome everyone who wants to sing for fun and enjoyment.  We sing for pleasure and as a way of socialising with our friends and the community.  We often perform at local events and we also take part in charity projects either with other choirs or on our own.  We have a sister choir in Isle Abbotts and together we perform as the Ile Valley Singers.

We were first set up as a women’s only choir around 40 years ago. We’ve changed a lot since then and had two Musical Directors.  Our last Director, David Sutcliffe has just retired after 10 wonderful years leading us.  We are now led by the brilliantly talented and energetic Chris Strong.
