Exe' A NEW choir for older girls aged 13 - 18 has
Welcome to the home of the Devon County Junior Choir - this is an exciting musical opportunity for children aged 8 to 13.
This site includes details about the choir, the organisations which have helped to create it, and how to join in the fun !
During 2012 – 13, DCJC sang at the first South West performance of Mahler's 8th Symphony at the University Great Hall in September. In November, DCJC participated in the live TV broadcast of Children in Need also at the University. The older members of DCJC also performed at the Cathedral's Diamond Jubilee Grand Nave Dinner in October. It took part in 3 Outreach Concerts, entertained Christmas shoppers in the Guildhall shopping centre and gave 2 informal concerts for families and friends. During the Spring Term, the choir held a joint vocal workshop with Eltham College, London. The highlight of the Summer Term was joining with Exeter Cathedral Choir, St Peter's Singers and Schola Exe to perform Britten's St Nicolas, where DCJC sang from the currently empty organ loft to perform as a true 'Gallery' Choir.
DCJC is conducted by Rachel Smith (Assistant Director of Music at Exeter Cathedral School) who directs the Full and Girls' Choirs and David Davies (Assistant Director of Music at Exeter Cathedral) who directs the Boys' Choir. From September 2012, Michael Graham, a Cathedral Choral Scholar, has also assisted with conducting and accompanying the choirs
