About us


Welcome to our choir

We are a mixed voice choir, formed in 1987, of roughly 30 members, based at Broadclyst near Exeter.

Our ages and backgrounds are diverse, as is the range of music we sing – mostly in four parts (SATB).

We are a friendly and enthusiastic group who thoroughly enjoy singing together while always striving to improve our knowledge and ability.

Our musical director

Our musical director is Hannah Stephenson who brings a wealth of musical talent and experience, together with an energy and enthusiasm that we are sure will take Cantilena onto new heights!

Our recent concert at Cranbrook

Cantilena performed a concert entitled “A Celtic Tea Party” on March 19th at Cranbrook. The varied programme featured Celtic folk songs and light music from around the world.

Highlights included the performance of a four part arrangement of The Mermaid which required the Tenors to don appropriate nautical hats. We were also treated to a selection of pieces sung by Whimple school choir.

After the concert, we enjoyed a tea party with our guests in the audience, sampling a good selection of mouth watering home made cakes.

Thanks to Susan Chamberlain for taking some great photos of the choir in action!
