About Us

The River City Chorus is an Exeter based Acappella and Barbershop group formed in 1992. We perform across Devon and the surrounding areas at weddings, social events and in local and national competitions.

In March 2016 we were thrilled to be crowned winners of the Ladies Choir Class at the Devon Performing Arts Festival

We are a chorus and not a choir because we incorporate choreography into our singing making an audio and visual experience for our audience

We currently have about 30 members who come from all walks of life and who travel to sing with us from all parts of Devon and Somerset and new members are always welcome.

We are a friendly and welcoming group and have a lot of fun but with a strong commitment to improving our performance. We sing a wide variety of songs, ranging from the romantic to easy beat and up tempo – spanning all the decades from 1910.


Music-basics-1Musical Director – Carole Locke

Carole’s involvement with music began at the age of 5, when she started piano lessons. Singing lessons followed at the age of 11, and both these activities have played a major part in her life ever since.

Carole has been involved in Acappella singing for over thirty-five years. In the early 1970s, Carole and her family moved from her birthplace, Liverpool, to Devon in the southwest of England. Carole joined the local ladies Acappella group, The Chordettes, and within a few months, she was asked to become the musical director.

The Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS) was formed in 1976, with the Chordettes as one of the founding choruses. In 1992, Carole took her chorus to the gold medal spot at the LABBS annual convention, and this resulted in their representing the UK at an international convention in the USA the following year. She continued as The Chordettes’ musical director until 1996, when her husband’s career took them to Belgium.

She is well known in Europe as a vocal coach for barbershop choruses and quartets, and has also coached and directed many other ACappella groups and solo singers in the UK, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, and Australia. For several years she was the musical director of the Hot Ginger Chorus chapter of the Sweet Adelines International Acappella singing organisation.

In 2008, Carole was a member of the Acappella quartet, ‘Quintessence’, which won the Sunshine Coast Region’s Senior Superstar competition.

Although Carole is now the much valued River City Chorus, she continues to coach other chorus groups, quartets and individuals in South Devon in her free time.
