RETURNING by popular demand, the Exeter Police and Community Choir will present a concert at St Mary’s Church, Stockleigh Pomeroy, on Thursday, September 28, beginning at 7.30pm.
The choir was formed in 1963 by members of the former Exeter City Police Force and is one of three male voice choirs in the Devon and Cornwall Police.
The choir celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2003 with a change of name and uniform and then celebrated its Golden Anniversary in 2013.
Many choir members still have a police connection but increasingly membership is now open to all members of the community.
The choir gives members the opportunity to take pleasure in choral singing in and around the City of Exeter and beyond.
Through their concerts, the choir members are able to support a number of worthy organisations, raise money for charities and foster good police/public relations.
The choir members hope to promote and enhance the city by contributing to the arts scene and encouraging young artists to perform in public.
The choir has given concerts across the West of England, including Bradford-on-Avon and as far afield as France.
The choir warmly welcomes potential new members, who need only to have a love of music and a basic musical ability. There are no auditions.
If you are interested in joining, contact the secretary, Bill Smith on 01626 891933 or speak to any member of the choir.
Attendance at this event is thoroughly recommended.
Tickets are priced at £5 (under 14’s £2.50) and these will be available at the door.
