Dart Festival Chorus at Dart Music Festival

 Rehearsals for Dart Festival Chorus’s 2014 concert are well underway.
This year the choir is under the expert musical guidance of guest conductor David Davies, Assistant Director of Music at Exeter Cathedral. 
The choir was the first group to hire The Cube in the new Dartmouth Academy building, which only opened 10 days before their first rehearsal, and they tell us they are really enjoying the space and the lovely acoustics!
Dart Festival Chorus is the Music Festival’s very own choir. It is made up of singers from choirs across South Devon, who come together each year and perform a festival concert on just three rehearsals. Jonathan Watts is the choir’s guest accompanist for this year’s concert, which is entitled The Grand Tour.

Following in the footsteps of the young and wealthy of the 18th and 19th centuries, the programme takes the audience on a musical journey around Europe. The itinerary begins in England and takes in France, Italy, Austria, Germany and Belgium before heading back home across the Channel.  On your travels, expect to hear some beautiful choral works by Mozart, Haydn, Vivaldi and Fauré, to name but a few.

 See you at the Festival – don’t forget your passports!
