‘A chamber choir based in Kingsbridge, Devon, UK. It was formed in 1985 and draws its members from around the South Hams. The choir's repertoire covers a wide range of sacred and secular music - works that are performed unaccompanied or are accompanied by keyboard, organ or instrumental ensembles. While most of our members are what might be called "mature", we are keen to promote young performers and frequently invite local students to take part. Concerts take place in a variety of venues, usually to raise money for charitable causes.’

'Founded in 1946 by Gerald King, Director of Music at the Royal Naval College, Dartmouth. The choir originally consisted of cadets and staff of the College supplemented by a few local civilians. The collaboration between town and college continued well into the 1980s, when changes within the college resulted in the choir becoming a self-supporting, independent society. Under successive directors, the choir has sought to maintain the established traditions of first-class programmes and performances.'

‘We are an amateur orchestra based in Dartmouth, with around 25 players drawn from across the South Hams and beyond. The orchestra was originally set up by a group of friends who were looking for an opportunity to play locally. Since then, it has grown but still keeps its friendly, sociable ethos. We currently perform three or four concerts a year, including one in the annual Dart Music Festival, each May.’
