Introducing the Torbay Singers
The Torbay Singers is an auditioned chamber choir based in Torquay and South Devon. The choir will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2017-18. The group welcomes members from all over South Devon and performs a varied and exciting programme from renaissance a capella music, through baroque and classical masterpieces to jazz and contemporary music.
Under the guidance of our Musical Director Tina Guthrie, the choir goes from strength to strength with recent successes including Will Todd's uplifting Mass in Blue, Ramirez's exotic Navidad Nuestra, Bach's exuberant Christmas Oratorio and Mozart's magnificent Great Mass in C minor.
