Welcome to the home of the Devon County Choirs. These exciting musical opportunities are for boys and girls aged 7 to 13 (DCJC) and girls aged 13 – 18 and boys with unchanged voices aged 13 and above (Schola Exe).

DCJC was founded in September 2007, followed by Schola Exe in February 2012.

This site includes general details about the County Choir organisation, including an application form to join one of the choirs. Complete termly schedules for all choirs are also included together with a complete list of performances, both past and forthcoming.

Whilst rehearsals have been taking place on Zoom during the pandemic, we are delighted that face to face rehearsals will be resuming in September. Further details will be uploaded in due course.

Specific information about each choir is to be found on each choir page.

The choirs were founded and conducted by Rachel Smith who is retiring from the post at the end of August 2021. From September 2021, the choirs' conductor and administrator will be Andrew Downton, the Singing Development Leader at Exeter Cathedral.
