Church Safari, October 2012

On Sunday 14 October, members of ExeVox embarked on their first “church concert safari”, touring the churches of Netherexe, where they performed a short concert in each church and collected money for HospisCare. With a programme of some of their favourite unaccompanied pieces (from Tallis and Bruckner to modern arrangements of traditional spirituals), ExeVox entertained audiences at the Parish Churches of St Mary the Virgin, Rewe, St Thomas of Canterbury, Thorverton and Our Lady, Upton Pyne. Entry to the concerts was free, and the retiring collections for HospisCare raised a total of £129.42. We received an enthusiastic reception in all three churches and thoroughly enjoyed our first “church safari”.

Ugbrooke Music Festival

The annual Ugbrooke Summer Music Festival began on Friday 8 July with a concert in aid of the South Devon Sports Association for the Disabled. Under the baton of  Musical Director and Pianist, Peter Adcock, ExeVox opened a treasure chest of favourite choral pieces (including works by Bach, Mozart, Purcell, Gershwin, as well as traditional Welsh songs). The choral music was interleaved with some scintillating performances by Peter Adcock of piano solos by the same or contemporary composers. Particular highlights of the evening came with the male-voice arrangement Tydi a roddaist (Arwel Hughes), the beautifully reflective piano piece Autumn moon over the calm lake (Lü Wencheng) and an impressive solo performance by soprano, Catherine White, of Gershwin's Summertime. The concert ended with a vibrant performance of Cy Coleman's Rhythm of Life.

Spring Concert 2011

ExevoxSt James Church, Christow: 21 May 2011

A Concert of Contrasts – leading Devon choir raises £750 for local heritage fund

Devon’s mediaeval parish churches are very special and make up a huge part of our national heritage; nearly every village has one, but buildings that are some 700 years old are constantly in need of repair. The Heritage Fund of St James’s Church, Christow aims to help in this and on Saturday 21 May invited one of Devon’s leading choirs, ExeVox, to perform in a fund-raising concert. A capacity audience showed great appreciation for the event, and £750 was raised for the Heritage Fund.

ExevoxSt Giles, Sidbury 14 Apr 2011


This concert was part of the Sidbury “Heralding the Spring” concert series, and proceeds were in aid of the beautiful church of St Giles at Sidbury.

With works by J S Bach, Purcell, Tchaikowsky, Vivaldi, Duke Ellington and Arwel Hughes, as well as some traditional folk songs, the programme travelled through time and space from England and Wales across Europe by way of Italy, Germany and Austria to Russia, and on to the USA – passing through a wide range of styles: Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Folk, Spiritual, Musical Revue and Jazz.
