Sadness and Sorrow

It is with much sadness and sorrow that we have to inform you of the sudden passing of our dear  friend and colleague Mike Pugh. He had been unwell for some time but despite his problems he was able to carry on with a cheerful  disposition and an excellent sense of humour . However, he took a turn for the worse and died suddenly in Torbay Hospital leaving everybody stunned. We still find it difficult to accept that he’s no longer with us.  

He sang in the Second Bass section for over twenty years with his wonderful Bass voice. Nothing was to much trouble for him and he would go out of his way to help others. He held several positions in the choir during his time with us.

In his spare time he used to drive for a charity, taking people to and from hospitals or surgeries and did it for charity.  They will miss him too.

Remaining 2021 concerts cancelled

31st August 2021 – At our last committee meeting it was decided due to Covid restrictions to cancel any concerts we had booked for this year. Although disappointing and with a heavy heart we felt that this was the right decision. It would give the choir far more time to rehearse ready for next year and hopefully recruit a new accompanist, a vital role in any choir. If you can help or know anyone who might be interested please contact me on the number below. 

It would seem there is a rumour going around that the choir is disbanding. In fact just the opposite is the case. We are recruiting new members now, so if there are any male singers  out there that would like to join us ring me David Brown Choir Secretary, on 01803 445130

A sad loss

It is with deep regret and much sadness that we have to announce the passing of our much loved and respected choir member John Friend. He had served the choir for over 25 years.
His loyalty and commitment to the choir were second to none. He will be sadly missed for his wonderful  tenor voice and his fantastic sense of humour.
Our thoughts are with John’s family and his many friends at this time.
R.I.P. John

All 2020 Concerts cancelled

Due to the uncertain time we find ourselves in due to the Coronavirus, we have now had to take the decision to cancel all our 2020 concerts. It is a proven fact that singing helps to spread the disease due to the amount of droplets that are emitted. However, things can change quite quickly, and if this is the case and we are allowed to start practising again who knows what may happen. Watch this space!
