The Alvington Singers was formed in 1985 as a chamber choir of about 30 members, currently up to 36. It is based in Kingsbridge, and its members come from around the South Hams. Our Musical Director, Tim Matthews, started his choral life as a chorister at Christ Church Cathedral School, Oxford, developing a lifelong love of music. He teaches piano, organ, theory and singing. When time allows he also sings with professional choirs around the South West.
The choir's repertoire covers a wide range of sacred and secular music - works that are performed unaccompanied or are accompanied by keyboard, organ or instrumental ensembles.
Rehearsals take place on Wednesday evenings in the Methodist Church Hall in Kingsbridge. (7.30 pm - 9.30 pm)
One of our ambitions
The choir is keen to encourage young musicians and regularly include them in concerts.
Most performances take place in venues around the South Hams and are given either in aid of charities or to support the choir's activities.
