ISCA VOICES

About Isca Voices 

Girl Choristers have sung in the choir of Exeter Cathedral since 1994. In addition to the regular round of service singing, the girls have appeared in numerous concerts, broadcasts and recordings and have toured in the USA, Holland, Cyprus, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Tenerife  Norway, Ireland and Austria. 

Unlike the girl choristers at many other cathedrals, the Exeter girls leave the choir at the age of thirteen. At the end of 2008, the Director of the Girl Choristers Stephen Tanner decided to create an opportunity for former girl choristers living locally to continue singing together and "Isca Voices" was born.

After some four years as cathedral choristers, the girls are very experienced performing musicians both vocally and instrumentally. Isca Voices aim to perform not only from the vast wealth of religious choral music from across the centuries but also to sing music from the folk, jazz and popular repertoires in close harmony. 

Isca Voices are available for concerts, charity events and weddings. 

 

**ISCA VOICES RELAUNCH** 

Following an enforced break during 2016, Isca Voices are now performing again and their next concert will be at Southernhay United Reformed Church in Exeter on Saturday 3rd June at 7.30pm. Isca Voices can also now be followed on their Facebook Page.
