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. We are happy to waive our normal subscriptions to encourage young musicians to join the choir and to help those preparing for College or University applications.

While most of our members are what might be called "mature", we are keen to promote young performers and frequently invite local students to take part. Concerts take place in a variety of venues, usually to raise money for charitable causes. In addition to concerts, we are often invited to sing at weddings, functions and local festivals.
