Clyst Valley Choral Society is a friendly choir of mixed voices. Our current membership stands at 35, drawn mainly from Exeter, Exmouth and the surrounding villages in the Clyst Valley.
The season runs from September to May with a break over Christmas. Rehearsals are held from 7.30pm until 9.15pm on Thursday evenings at Clyst St. Mary Church, near Exeter.
We perform two concerts each year, in November and in the Spring, as well as a Christmas concert for charity.
Under our conductor, Paul Stock, we sing music from the standard choral repertoire and challenging new works.
Enthusiastic singers are always welcome . Auditions are not required. If you would like to join us on a Thursday evening you would be very welcome. For further information please visit the 'Contact us' page.
