The Exonian Choir is a London-based vocal ensemble made up of former choral scholars from Exeter College Chapel Choir, University of Oxford and beyond.
Founded in 2016, we meet several times a year to perform the music we learned and loved as choral scholars, in both concert and sacred settings. Over the last few years, we have sung choral evensong at Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Southwark Cathedral, and Westminster Cathedral, and we have performed as part of the Brandenburg Festival. Summer 2019 saw our first international tour, singing at L’Église de la Madeleine and the American Cathedral, Paris.
Director of Music: Tim Muggeridge
Tim 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. Since then he has lead them in performance at the Brandenburg Festival, St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, and on tour in Paris.
While at Exeter, Tim directed the well regarded mixed-voice chapel choir in their thrice weekly services and broadcast with them on Radio 3, 4, and Classic FM, releasing two critically acclaimed CDs. He studied organ under William Whitehead, and conducting with Paul Spicer.
