Share this story

The Exonian Choir, which is a London-based vocal ensemble made up of former choral scholars from Exeter College Chapel Choir, University of Oxford, will draw the Kildare Organ and Choral Festival to a conclusion this Saturday 26th August at 6.00pm.

Founded in 2016, the Exonian Choir meets several times a year to perform the music which was learned and loved by choral scholars, in both concert and sacred settings. Over the last few years, they have sung choral services at Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s, Winchester, and Westminster Cathedrals, and have performed as part of London’s Brandenburg Festival. Summer 2019 saw our first international tour, with performances at L’Église de la Madeleine and the American Cathedral, Paris. Most recently, they toured to Florence, in July 2022, performing at the Basilica di San Lorenzo.

Their Director of Music, Tim Muggeridge, founded the Exonian Choir in October 2016 by bringing together former choristers and alumni from the Chapel Choir of Exeter College, Oxford, where he was Organ Scholar between 2013 and 2016 whilst reading Music. The ensemble also enjoys the support of other former organ scholars: George de Voil (Music, 2011), Bartosz Thiede (Music, 2015), and James Short (Music, 2017).

Tickets are €12 and are available online or at the door of St Brigid’s Cathedral, Kildare – https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/exonian-choir-oxford-tickets-673973251137
