What a fabulous evening we had, celebrating the Last Night of the Proms. A delicious buffet was served, we had a laugh at some classic comedy clips, joined in some community singing and then joined the BBC for the second half of the Last night of the Proms, waving flags and singing our hearts out.
It was a real pleasure to present this cheque for £700 to Devon Air Ambulance, raised by our ‘Sounds of Summer 2019’ concert back in June this year. We all love singing and it was very rewarding for us to see such a positive outcome from our concert.
Our Summer Concert was again a huge success for the choir. This year we nominated Devon Air Ambulance as our chosen charity and we were delighted with the support.
Once again the concert was held in St John’s Church, Bridgetown, Totnes and DCHQ were welcomed back as our guests.
For the first time we literally had ’em dancing in the aisles to our finale of Dancing Queen.
Here are some quotes from the audience:
“The acoustics were amazing and highlighted all the wonderful voices of both choir and quartet”.
“Thank You! for a truly professional and wonderful and enjoyable evening.”
Our next appearance will be at the Apple Pie Fair, Marldon on 27th July where we will be singing some of our favourite summer songs. Come along and listen and treat yourself to strawberries from our stall.
Rehearsals are well under way now and if you walk past Marldon Primary School on a Monday evening you will hear us singing our hearts out.
This year we are supporting Devon Air Ambulance, so please come along to St John’s Church, Bridgetown in Totnes for a really enjoyable evening of popular songs. We are delighted to welcome back Devon Close Harmony Quartet who were kind enough to sing along with us at our first concert.
Tickets are £8 and include a glass of wine or soft drink and are available from Marldon Newsagents, Marldon Cut of Class hairdressers, and from Anne on 07703066877. There will be a limited number of tickets available on the door also. We look forward to seeing you!

A fabulous evening was had by all at the Race Night held last Saturday. Over 90 people came, we all enjoyed plenty of food, wine and betting although nobody lost their shirt! It was also a really successful fundraiser for the choir and we hope to do more in the future, so look out for more event notices.

We were delighted to present to Rowcroft Hospice at our first rehearsal this term the amazing amount of £2000 raised at our ‘Sounds of Summer 2018’ concert. We had dedicated the concert to Ronnie our friend and former choir member who sadly passed away earlier this year and we feel we did her proud!
This set our first rehearsal of the term off to a terrific start. We have some great new songs this term and some new members. We still have spaces for altos and men, so don’t be shy, come and join us! We rehearse on Monday evenings, starting at 7.30pm at Marldon Primary School.
