Further Information

The Voices of Exmoor choir is made up of individuals who just wish to sing, and, in so doing, can spread an enthusiasm for their love of music to all. The choir was formed in 2005, when 16 singers from the three churches in Dulverton came together under the direction of April Golding for a “one-off” event. Ten years later the choir goes from strength to strength, now with 40 singers.

The choir presents two main concerts each year - one in the summer and one before Christmas. Proceeds from the concerts are donated to charities. Charities supported have included the Calvert Trust Exmoor, The Samaritans, St Margaret's Hospice, The Children's Hospice, Macmillan, Marie Curie and various local charities. For 2015 our charity is the Air Ambulance. Over the last few years we have donated many thousands of pounds.

This year's Summer Concert celebrates the10th anniversary of the choir and will be a lively and light-hearted mixture of favourite songs from recent concerts along with some new material. Our contribution to the Festival will be based on this entertaining selection.

The Musical Director for Voices of Exmoor is April Golding. April trained as a singer but stumbled into church music and choral direction by happy accident. She founded and directed the Corpus Christi Boys' Choir for 25 years and retired to Exmoor 11 years ago. After some persuasion from Father Robert Miller of St Stanislaus, Dulverton, she agreed to form a small group for a one-off event.........the rest, as they say, is history
