We are delighted to welcome Andrea Brown who has been appointed as the new Music Director for Exeter Festival Chorus. Andrea has extensive experience in leading award-winning choirs and festivals across the globe. Exeter Festival Chorus is fortunate that its search for a new Music Director coincided with Andrea’s move to the South West.
Exeter Festival Chorus is in the unique position amongst our local choirs where we are not resuming our choral lives, but beginning a new era and eagerly anticipating Andrea’s leadership to take us in inspiring new directions.
To extol the positives from the last year, Exeter Festival Chorus has gained inventiveness and flexibility, online experience of making meaningful music, and we have largely retained a smaller number, but still cohesive, group of impassioned singers. We are looking to the regeneration of our choir’s future with a sense of reinvention to engage new members, seek out wider audiences and energise our current members, with Andrea Brown giving us a new artistic vision. In all our planning we have full regard for the COVID regulations, following Government guidance issued via the Department of Culture Media and Sport and the ‘Making Music’ website. We will be careful to address the concerns of our members and audience in our planning.
We invite potential new singers to get in touch – please see the details under the ‘Join’ tab.
In the meantime, you may like to read Reviews of our recent concerts, or to consult 'What Was On', the archive list of all concerts since the Chorus was founded in 1993.
