The choir welcomes applicants for all voice parts - we are particularly keen to hear from tenors & basses!

Note that the size of the Great Hall, and the need for balance across the choir, means that some voice parts may be oversubscribed - if so, you may be placed on our waiting list. 


Joining the choir

Dartington Community Choir is a non-auditioned choir. The Choir meets for rehearsal either in the Great Hall or one of the Dartington Studios each Monday from 19.30 until 21.30 September through to June. Each term, at least one rehearsal is held on a Saturday morning from 10.00 until 12.30, normally in St Johns Church, Bridgetown, Totnes.
If you are interested in joining the choir, please email us at with the following information:
  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Voice part, if known (e.g. Soprano, 1st Soprano...)
  • Previous singing experience if any
  • Any message/query you might have
Our membership secretary will respond to your email as soon as possible.  Note that the size of the Great Hall dictates the number in the Choir and applicants for some voice parts may be placed on our waiting list. 
Junior membership: a small number of junior memberships are currently available, at a reduced rate, for young singers aged over 16 and under 18 years. Some prior musical experience is preferred (e.g. as part of a school choir / orchestra / band, or from learning a musical instrument) in order to make the most of rehearsals and the end-of-term concert.  Junior membership is by invitation and at the discretion of the committee - please contact the membership secretary with the information mentioned above if interested, making it clear that you are interested in junior membership.
Past members: If you are a past member of the Choir who would like to keep in touch with concerts and events, e-mail to be added to our mailing list.
