Prepare to be entertained with ambitious and diverse programming which will include works by Rachmaninov, Monteverdi, Bach, Goodall, Parry, Willcocks and more, sung with a spirit that carries the Exeter Festival Chorus through some of the most demanding scores in the choral repertoire.

Under the inspired and dynamic musical direction of Nigel Perrin, this choir of around 75 singers has become one of the region’s most versatile and highly acclaimed choral groups. It performs with professional orchestras and soloists and aims to bring choral music of the highest quality to its audiences, expanding musical boundaries for singers and listeners alike.
