Devon Chorister Outreach Project

More of Devon’s pupils have had the chance to perform at prestigious venues as the Devon Chorister Outreach Project reached the Braunton Learning Community and they came together for a celebratory concert at Exeter Cathedral. This long standing partnership project has visited 90% of Devon schools and is a key priority of the DMEH Singing Strategy.

This term saw 6 schools from Braunton participate in sessions with members of the Cathedral team before coming together to sing in the inspirational surroundings in central Exeter with the Cathedral Choristers. The project will be followed up with the development of an inclusive Braunton transition choir for the area, and more advanced young singers will have the chance to join the North Devon arm of the Devon County Junior Choir, another initiative supported by the DMEH Singing Strategy to bring advanced singing opportunities and specialist coaching to this more rural part of Devon.
