Dart Festival Chorus is the Dart Music Festival's very own choir. It is dedicated to supporting the aims of the festival by encouraging people to participate in and enjoy choral music, whether as singers or as members of the audience. Its members are drawn from choirs across South Devon.

In 2018, under the direction of James Davey and accompanied by Ian Curror, the choir sang a wide range of works from the Renaissance period up to the present day. Dart Festival Chorus is delighted to announce that the same winning team will be returning to lead our music-making in 2019. 

The concert will take place at St Saviour's Church, Dartmouth on Sunday, 12 May, 2019.
