Marldon Community Choir – ‘The choir that just keeps on giving’,
We had great pleasure in singing at Mayfield College’s Christmas Fair, as it’s the Charity we have chosen to support this year.
Our Chair, Yvonne Paddon, was pleased to present a cheque for £500.00 to Rachel Hawthorne, Head of College at Mayfield.
Our choir has supported several charities since we started singing in 2014: Rowcroft Hospice, Devon Air Ambulance, Children’s Hospice South west, St Johns church Totnes, The Salvation Army, and many more.
If you enjoy Singing and would like to join us, please contact us on this website.
Sounds of Christmas 2022
We sang our hearts out at our Christmas concert in Marldon Parish Church, and pleased to have so many friends and families to join us. We finished with audience participation in ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ followed by mince pies and mulled wine. Definitely in the Christmas spirit now.
Christmas songs at Occombe Farm
We had a lovely sing at Occombe Farm to add to their Christmas cheer, and delighted that so many children, parents and staff joined us.

Please bring a face covering to wear whilst moving around, they can be removed once seated and as usual we will be spacing the chairs so we are socially distanced.
Also please bring any music you may have at home, as new music will be distributed for the Summer term.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again!
Good news! Singing starting soon!
We are going to start back singing on Monday 7th Feb and will start working towards a summer concert rehearsing through to Monday 11th April without a half-term break.
Our summer concert with be on Saturday 2nd July at St John’s Church, Totnes
And there are some social events coming up to put in the calendar:
Saturday 9th April – Sing along Grease
Saturday 10th September – Last night of the Proms with a live link to the Royal Albert Hall.
Oh dear, I’m sorry to say that we are going to postpone the start of choir rehearsals and will not be meeting next Monday 10th Jan as originally planned.
This is because of high levels of Covid locally. Several members have expressed concern about this and the Choir Committee made this decision yesterday.
Please watch this website for further information. Hopefully we will resume in a couple of weeks, but will let everyone know in good time.
