Dart Festival Chorus is Dart Music Festival’s very own choir. It is dedicated to supporting the aims of the Festival by encouraging people to participate in and enjoy choral music, whether as singers or as members of the audience. Its members are drawn from choirs across South Devon.
Every year, the choir invites a Guest Conductor to direct them. This year they are delighted to welcome Stephen Tanner. Stephen founded the Girl Choristers’ section of Exeter Cathedral Choir, and was director of the section from 1994 until the summer of 2016. He combined this role with the position of Director of Music at Exeter Cathedral School. This multi-talented musician is also an accomplished composer and arranger.
The theme for the choir’s 2017 concert is ‘The Seasons of the Year’. The choir will be celebrating spring, summer, autumn and winter in a wide-ranging programme that features both sacred and secular music. If you have ever yearned to hear Christmas music in May, here’s the opportunity you’ve been waiting for!
Full details are in the official Programme and Lanyard.
