Music to our ears! Choir’s spring concert in aid of the Museum of Policing in Devon and Cornwall

A choral concert in Tavistock in March will help preserve and protect policing history in Devon and Cornwall.

The Plymouth Area Police Choir is gearing up for an evening of entertainment and music at St Eustachius’ Church, Plymouth Road, in Tavistock, on Thursday, March 14, 2024, in support of the Museum of Policing in Devon and Cornwall (MOPIDAC).

Funds donated from the evening concert will aid the Museum’s work, and its mini premises which recently opened in the heart of Tavistock.

The doors open at 6.40pm, ready for an evening of entertainment from 7.30pm. The choir is expected to include a varied programme of choral and popular music, plus show tunes and family favourites.

The choir has confirmed soprano Rosemary Turner will also perform at the concert, plus Mazur Park will play the oboe.

Tickets are £10, available at the door on the night.

Jerry Bawden, from the Plymouth Area Police Choir, said: “The choir will provide an eclectic mix of music under our musical director Brian Gerry who was honoured in the New Year list with a well-deserved BEM for services to music and performing arts.”

The choir, which promotes male voice choral music and is made up of serving and retired police officers, staff, Special Constables, and musical members from outside the force, has raised more than half a million pounds for community causes since it formed in 1972.
