Brent Singers offers an exciting opportunity for a musician with good professional and interpersonal skills to direct a well established mixed choir numbering around 70 singers, based in the lively community of South Brent near Totnes, from September 2018. The choir rehearses on Monday evenings from 7.30 - 9.30 and performs at least three classical concerts a year. Our Spring concert is traditionally in Buckfast Abbey, usually with an orchestra and professional soloists. Past works performed include 'The Seven Last Words of Christ (Haydn), 'Messe de Minuit pour Noël' (Charpentier, 'HMS Pinafore' (Gilbert and Sullivan) and 'Dido and Aeneas' (Purcell). The choir will perform Mozart's Requiem at Buckfast Abbey on April 22 this year as part of the prestigious celebrations of the Abbey's 1000th anniversary.
The choir participates every other year in an exchange visit, including a shorter performance, with a choral group based in South Brent's twinned community in Brittany.
