ABOUT THE CHOIRS
The Devon County Junior Choirs are for any children from Years 3 to 8 who are really enthusiastic about singing and who would enjoy the opportunity to enhance their singing technique and perform regularly. It is not necessary for any child to have previous experience of singing in a choir - the most important things are enthusiasm and the ability to sing in tune. Schola Exe offers further tuition and experience for girls aged 13 - 18 and boys with unchanged voices.
The choirs meet regularly to rehearse throughout the school terms: full details can be found on the specific choir pages and on the Diary page. The choirs sing a wide variety of music in different styles. The Performance page gives an indication of some of the concerts and events at which the choirs have performed. Whilst practices are for choir members only, we shall really look forward to welcoming parents, family and friends to our public performances.
The County Choirs are entirely dependent financially upon grants and voluntary contributions to cover running costs. To assist with this, we invite parents to make a donation each term.
The Junior Choir uniform (red tops) is provided at no extra cost. We ask that you provide an all black bottom half (skirts or trousers for girls). For very formal occasions, we ask that the children wear a white, long sleeved school shirt with black bottoms, and we provide red accessories (bow ties for boys, hair clip for girls). All choir members are expected to have an A4 ring binder for music in which the children can add music in alphabetical order which makes it easier for them to manage. We also ask that you provide your child with a drink (no fizzy drinks) and small snack for them to have during our break time in rehearsals.
In Schola Exe, the girls wear a black dress for performances (any style), provided by parents. Boys wear black shirts and trousers. Folders are provided by us for use in performances.
