Peter Adcock's "ExeVox" Choir St David's, Exeter Tea-time concert of Cantatas, Madrigals, Folk Songs and Comic Songs plus ExeVox Barbershop Quartet (cream tea included) 4pm Sunday 15 June 2014 Message from Simon Murray

ExeVox Choir
Musical Director: Peter Adcock (centre)

ExeVox are a small choir of around 20 singers who have been around for ten years now performing 8/10 concerts per year all over the county. We are based in Exeter but singers come from all over Devon and Wiltshire and even Cambridgeshire!

We are directed by the dynamic Peter Adcock, who is a phenomal player of any type of key-board.

We sing a very varied repertoire, which is why we love this choir so much. So in any one concert you might hear Bach's stunning motet 'Jesu meine Freude' , Gershwin's 'I Got Rhythm', and Flanders and Swann's 'Slow Train'.

We perform mainly in churches in Devon but have sung in the Guildhall for the Mayor's Charity, and in a Cathedral in the South of France. Other venues have included public squares, market places, hotels and a number of restaurants  . . .  Last week we sang at a wedding in the Royal Naval College Dartmouth, which was fascinating.

We also have informal sub-choirs such as a quartet who are performing in St Stephen's Church on the afternoon of Tuesday 10th June for carers as part of Carer's Week and another close harmony quartet called G.C.H.Q. (Glorious Close Harmony Quartet) who are singing in Ide on 20th July for Hospiscare.

We take our music very seriously but we do not take ourselves too seriously. Our web-site address is
