Our choir of 80 singers has a proud history of exciting and innovative choral concerts and performances over the last 30 years in venues in and around the Exeter area and the southwest. We also have established links with partner choirs in Germany and France.

The first two seasons (2021/22 and 22/23) under our new Musical Director, Andrea Brown, have been a great success, as shown by our concert reviews, which are full of praise for our choir: ”…a sparkle in their eyes and joy in their voices… ”, praising the choir’s ability to sing “…a demanding programme of highly varied styles and textures” as well as noting Andrea’s “… ability to draw out a fine array of colours alongside precision and vivacity”.  These culminated in a spectacular concert in Exeter Cathedral in which we presented Elgar’s Dream of Gerontius. The review of this event can be found in the ‘reviews’ section.

The 2023/24 season, which starts in September, continues the celebration of our 30th anniversary year. Details of the programme can be seen in the What’s On section.

Our welcoming and friendly choir sings a broad repertoire from early music to contemporary and jazz in regular collaboration with other choirs and with professional musicians, both instrumental and vocal. Members of the choir also audition for solo and semi-chorus roles and the degree of accomplishment can be seen in the EFC concert reviews.

In addition, we are developing community outreach activities, supporting fundraising events and taking us to new audiences (young and old), both as a whole choir and in smaller ensembles. For our singers and audiences alike, EFC looks forward to continuing our musical adventures into an even brighter future.
