About us

 

Exeter Police and Community Choir was originally formed by serving police officers in Exeter in 1963 but for some years has attracted members from the wider community.

 

The longevity of the choir is an indication of how healthy singing can be for you!

 

The choir has appeared on television and on the radio in previous years. Concerts are performed in halls and churches in Exeter and other parts of Devon, enabling organisations to raise funds for their own charities.

Sam Nickels

Accompanist

Sam studied music at the Birmingham Conservatoire, where he especially enjoyed working with singers in masterclasses, recitals and competitions.  


He also accompanied several choirs and played for dance classes at The Royal Ballet School.  In 2011, Sam made a brief TV appearance on BBC’s ‘The Choir’, when he accompanied the Military Wives Choir as they sang ‘Thank you for the music’ to choirmaster/presenter Gareth Malone. Since then he has regularly performed with the Lympstone Military Wives Choir and now we are very fortunate to have him as our regular accompanist.
