Exeter Philharmonic Choir

Welcome

EPC celebrates its 175-year anniversary with Brahms’ Requiem

Yes, it’s true. We will sing for you again!

Plans are in place for our 2021-2022 season, which will celebrate the remarkable milestone of 175 years of singing in Exeter since the choir’s foundation in 1846.

To mark the anniversary of the choir’s very first performance, we will perform Brahms’ Requiem on Saturday 12 March 2022, in Exeter Cathedral. Before then we hope to see you at our first concert on Saturday 13 November and at our regular carol concerts in the Cathedal on Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 December.

During the pandemic, we’ve continued to sing together online. Since Christmas we’ve explored songs by Palestrina, Rachmaninov and Brahms with our Director of Music, Howard Ionascu. We have also commissioned four soloists to lead virtual workshops focusing on vocal technique and performance. Choir members are enjoying their expert guidance and support with keeping our voices in good shape.

Our Associate Director of Music, Stephen Tanner, is leading some ‘Good Sing’ sessions, focusing on English folksongs – still online. He is also running a series of theory workshops. And we’re even hoping to have some live rehearsals together in May.

So, with fingers firmly crossed, we’re looking forward to a joyful return to performing before a live audience on 13 November. We have missed you all so much.
