Who are we?
Teignmouth Sings is a community choir for people who like to sing for fun. On these pages you can find links to our forthcoming performances, details of our press coverage and information on how to join us.
The choir was formed in 2009 by David Roberts. It has been growing, not only in numbers, but also in reputation ever since.
Recently, we had the privilege of performing in the Teignmouth Riviera, when over sixty members of our choir were on stage.
Locally, we have become well known for our wide and ever-increasing repertoire of songs. These include songs from shows and musicals: Fiddler on the Roof, Les Misérables, Mamma Mia, Sweet Charity, The King and I are a few. The choir has also learnt James Bond themes, medleys from Andrew Lloyd Webber and The Beatles. We also sing favourites from Queen, Adele, Labbie Siffrey, The Hollies, Ben E King and many more….
We almost always perform as a whole choir, but occasionally our members perform solos or duets. Our musical director is more than happy for members to suggest new material. We have been learning a few jazz numbers, including a beautiful arrangement of Moon River from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. We have also learnt a new medley of songs from the film, ‘Oliver’.
Our Christmas repertoire is particularly enchanting. Members look forward to our Christmas events each year, not only for the mulled wine and mince pies, but because the music is a joy to perform and really gets us into the holiday spirit.

Interested in joining?
Due to our popularity, the need to keep a balance of voices in the choir and the number of Sopranos and Altos who joined us last year, we are not recruiting any new members for these sections for the time being. You are welcome to put your name on a waiting list and we will keep you informed of any vacancies. If you are able to sing in either the Tenor or Bass sections (women or men), places are available. In order for new members to gain the most from their experience, it is recommended that they start their membership at the beginning of a term. The final date for new members to join and pay for their membership is Monday 25th September.
If you wish to join us, or have your name added to the waiting list, please contact 01626 879487. Alternatively, you could use the form on our Contact Us page.
