The Torbay Singers are looking forward to presenting some thrilling, much-loved music in our 2018-19 season. In the autumn, we will join the celebrations of Leonard Bernstein’s centenary with his beautiful Chichester Psalms, paired with Poulenc’s enduringly popular Gloria. Spring will take us again into the awe-inspiring world of Bach’s St John Passion. Watch this space!
The Torbay Singers was formed in summer 1967 through a merger of the Torquay Philharmonic Society and the Lansdowne Singers. To celebrate 50 years of music-making in South Devon and beyond, the choir was delighted to present a special celebration season of major events, starting with a sparkling Christmas celebration, Joy to the World on Saturday 2nd December 2017. Spring fulfilled a long-held ambition to present Monteverdi’s splendid Vespers of 1610, with an orchestra including historic brass instruments evoking the majesty of St Mark’s Venice. Summer took the choir back to the serene surroundings of Buckfast Abbey for a joyful programme of sacred song.
