St Michael’s Church is a lively centre for musical and cultural activities at the heart of the city of Exeter. Recitals and concerts have taken place at St Michael’s for many years, with artists from the UK and abroad extolling its beautiful acoustic and lovely interior. As part of our Heritage and Music project, the St Michael’s Recital Series was founded in 2013 by Prof Matthew Wright, Classicist, Pianist and Tenor in St Michael’s choir. The series was then run for 2014/15 by a team from the choir; Marianne Connors, Sophie Nicholson and Alex West. The 2015 series culminated with an amazing and inspirational visit from world-renowned vocal octet, VOCES8, when 80+ took part in their exciting Choral Workshop and 120+ enjoyed their stunning evening Recital.
Unfortunately we do not have the resources to continue with monthly recitals at present.
We are, of course, delighted to host individual Concerts at St Michael’s at any time; the Church may be hired at £20 per hour for rehearsal, set-up, and performance, and your group then keeps the proceeds; for further details, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
