History

ExeVox was formed in 2005 by a small group of like-minded singers from the Exeter area, who wanted to perform an eclectic range of music (literally from “Bach to Beatles”!). They appointed Peter Adcock as their inspirational musical director, who would not only conduct them, but also accompany the singers on various keyboard instruments, write programme notes, arrange well known pieces in his own inimitable style, etc., etc.

They gave their first performance in St. Michael’s Church, Heavitree on 9th April 2005, to great acclaim, and have had a faithful following ever since. There are great skills within the group, so, for the most part, solos are undertaken by its own members. Under Peter Adcock’s direction, the group has gone from strength to strength, and “spread the word” far and wide, in Devon and beyond, over the past 10 years. They have good relations with the Press, and have carried out interviews with Exeter’s Phonic FM and BBC Radio 3. Some recordings have been taken, both in studio and in concert. We hope to post some “samplers” on this website soon.

ExeVox@10 – We celebrated our 10th anniversary in style - have a look at what we achieved under the RECENT CONCERTS heading.

Over the last ten years concerts have taken us throughout Devon and we’ve performed with international artists including mezzo soprano Sarah Walker C.B.E. and virtuoso classical trumpeter Crispian Steele-Perkins. Further afield, ExeVox members performed in Belgium (Ghent), France (Mirepoix) and Italy (Rome).

Raising funds for charities

ExeVox is proud of the contribution it makes to the work of local charities and over the years we have helped organisations raise thousands of pounds through our concerts.

Recent concerts have supported the work of Hospiscare, the Motor Neurone Disease Association and the Carers’ Association, as well as a number of Devon’s beautiful churches.

ExeVox songsters join in non-singing charity activities, too: in 2014 four ExeVox sopranos - Nicky, Lorna and Katherine and Shirley - joined 400 other ladies to take part in the 12km "Starlight Walk" for Hospiscare.
