ExeVox is an auditioning chamber choir of around twenty musicians based in Exeter. Mixing pleasure and work, music and friendship, we are a group of experienced singers brought together by a shared love of music old and new, classical and contemporary, British and beyond - from Tallis to Rachmaninov, Gershwin, Whitacre, from Bach to the Beatles.
ExeVox can supply 8-18 experienced singers for weddings, parties, matinées, soirées, and concerts, singing music from the Renaissance to modern arrangements of popular songs and jazz numbers. Our repertoire spans a myriad of music from Byrd and Vittoria through Bach, Handel, Purcell, Mozart, Schubert, Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, to King's Singers' hits, folksongs and modern favourites. We rehearse for specific performances, and are happy to discuss your requirements for a tailor-made programme.
