! Totnes KEY

'All about being creative during the day, in week-long courses, workshops and masterclasses. Every evening you can listen to up to three concerts, and perhaps perform in some of them too. The range of music covers classical, jazz, world music and folk, as well as courses in multimedia, film, visual arts and creative writing ...' Held During August.

* Dartington International Summer School & Festival

‘We aim to help children learn and improve musicianship whilst also learning that music is a fun and rewarding social activity and not just a “hard effort” practising alone at home. We are an inclusive organisation and offer children of all ages and musical abilities – from 4 to 18 and from complete beginner to virtuoso – the opportunity to enjoy making music with others in a wide variety of ensemble workshops.’

 

* Saturday Morning Music [Totnes]

'TEMS has been running since 1999. Our performers are professional musicians respected in the Early Music or folk fields with a sprinkling of younger performers who are establishing their careers. Most have trained at top colleges and conservatoires and have played with nationally recognised ensembles such as the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Our concerts achieve national listings with people attending from as far away as Bristol and Penzance. More than half of our members come from beyond Totnes – from villages and towns in the South Hams, Torbay and from Exeter and Plymouth.'

 

* Totnes Early Music Society

‘A non-auditioned community choir based in South Brent, Devon which has been in existence for over thirty years ... We sing a variety of music, performing three concerts a year at Christmas, Easter and Summer. Our Summer Concert is of a lighter tone ... The audience sit café-style bringing picnics for this concert. Our Easter concert is sung in Buckfast Abbey and usually includes a major work.’

 

+ Brent Singers

‘We rehearse and perform large-scale choral works in the 15th Century Great Hall on the beautiful Dartington Estate, near Totnes in Devon ... Membership is non-auditioned and open to all who wished to participate in choral singing ... Our choral workshops are open to all singers (not just DCC members).’

 

+ Dartington Community Choir

‘The 20 piece band is made up of musicians from the South West of England ... As well as being part of this band a lot of the musicians play in other smaller ensembles ... One of the aims of the South Devon Big Band is to help young jazz players and with the help of a kind donation from Totnes Rotary Club we have been able to offer subscription free membership for the younger players in the band.’

 

+ South Devon Big Band

‘A full-sized symphony orchestra which regularly performs concerts to a wide range of audiences across South Devon. Musicians come from far and wide to play in the orchestra which is based in Totnes, a market town well known for its alternative culture ... The TSO enjoys a reputation for embracing all kinds of music in our concerts, from the familiar and popular to acclaimed performances of contemporary repertoire and music specifically commissioned by the orchestra from living composers.’

 

+ Torbay Symphony Orchestra

'Music plays an important role in the life of the Abbey, whether it be Gregorian Chant sung by the Monastic Community at the Daily Office, or choral music sung by the Abbey Choir at the Solemn Mass. The Abbey is a centre of musical activity in Devon, with a popular series of concerts and organ recitals.'
