Welcome to the Dartington Community Choir website

“Dartington Community Choir was established to encourage choral music making within the community.  It evolved from the choirs first formed on the Dartington estate by Imogen Holst and continues her ethos of music making of the highest order achievable by amateur voices.  I am proud to continue that tradition and I am eager to see a big choir to be just that: big in number and big in the vision of its capabilities, achieved through a hard working but enjoyable rehearsal process.

We will sing music in the language it was written in and with, as close as possible, the original forces to accompany it.  Some choirs claim to be the premier choir of a particular area; Dartington Community Choir strives to deliver to its audiences music it can be proud of, not only for its standards of performance 'on the night' but for its integrity in performance practice.

And, of course, we are so lucky to have the unique and inspiring Dartington estate in which to both rehearse and perform.”
