Lyme Bay Chorale’s musical director, Alex Davies, is introducing his choir to the very talented organist, conductor, music educator and examiner Peter Parshall.

In addition to maintaining a private teaching practice, he is a tutor for the Lyme Regis Organ School, a tutor for the PipeUp scheme run by the Diocese of Salisbury, director of music at Axminster Parish Church, director of RSCM Voices West, guest director to the Axminster and District Choral Society, Axminster Chamber Choir, and accompanist to Bridport Choral Society.

Peter will be working with Lyme Bay Chorale as their guest conductor for the choir’s spring concert on Sunday, May 14.

Alex said: “It’s fantastic to work with Peter, who has already made a huge contribution to the community, namely his work with the organ school, with local choirs and choral societies.

“I feel it keeps the choir fresh to work with different conductors. I think Peter will put a spring in our step this spring!”’

The concert will be at 4pm, on Sunday, May 14, at St Michael’s Parish Church, Lyme Regis.

Tickets are £15 on the door or £13 in advance from Lyme’s Tourist Information Centre, Penny Black’s Tea-room in Lyme and from choir members.

Under-19s are free. Ticket includes Lyme Bay Chorale’s famous post concert buffet.
