IT’S goodbye and hello as Budleigh Salterton Male Voice Choir loses one musical director and gains another.

Pictured are Allen Coles, retiring MD, with Pam Jones, a founder and lifetime president, and the new musical director, Peter Good.

Peter, a semi-professional bassoon and clarinet player and MD for the University of Exeter Musical Theatre Society, will direct his first concert at All Saints Church, Sidmouth, on Saturday, March 17, from 7.30pm.

A chorus performer for the university’s Gilbert and Sullivan Society and MD for Exter Male Voice Choir, Peter’s musical career started at a young age, when he learnt clarinet and bassoon, playing in the school band and symphony orchestra.

Currently he is completing a Masters degree at Exeter University.

A silver medallist at judo, Peter speaks seven languages and enjoys reading sc-fi books, walking on the Moors and cooking.

Tickets, priced £7, for the Sidmouth concert, are available by calling 01935 516183 or 512798.
