Choir reboot 2021

Starting on Monday 8th February, via Zoom

12:30 – 13:15

We are delighted to announce that we have enough interest to restart UoE’s Community Choir: “Sing@Exeter”

This weekly virtual singing group is available for all staff and PGR students (from all campuses), university volunteers and retired staff to join.

In lockdown, it’s more important than ever for us to take a break during the working day. It can help to have a planned activity to attend and singing is wonderfully therapeutic. It's great way to relax and has proven physical and psychological benefits. 

Sessions will be led by Claire Anstee, an experienced choir leader who teaches songs through a listen and repeat system, so no music reading ability is required. We sing music that is quick to learn, and accessible to all no matter your experience. Music will be chosen to suit the ability of the group. Our weekly group is also an opportunity to chat with other members of the choir and check on how we’re all getting on. We're a relaxed and sociable group for staff and PGRs who enjoy singing and like making music with other people. 

Fees: to be paid directly to the choir leader. Based on expected numbers, the cost for the trial of 3 weeks will be £3 per session if paid in advance in this 3-week block (£9), or £4 per individual session. Your first session will be free if you have not sung with our staff choirs before.

For more information on how to join the group on Zoom, how to pay and how to join their mailing list please email

"Singing in a choir can boost your mental health, a new study has found. While the feel-good effects of singing have long been recognised, there is growing evidence that it can have a positive impact on a range of physical and psychological conditions! Source:
