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.

2016 sees the 5th anniversary of Dart Festival Chorus. We thought it would be fun to mark the occasion by going on a world tour! The choir will be singing a mix of both sacred and secular music and taking you on a journey of musical discovery, visiting Western Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, the Far East, Africa and the Americas. 

Around the World in 60 Minutes will take place at St Saviour's Church, Dartmouth on Sunday, 15 May, 2016.
