About the Modbury Gospel Singers

The Modbury Gospel Singers was established in 2002, to enable singers of all abilities to enjoy the power of song in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Over the past few years we have gained increasing recognition under the guidance of our Musical Director Jo Highley.

Whilst our emphasis is on traditional Afro-American gospel singing, we are also at home with hymns and more modern music in four part harmony. We try to learn about singing and music generally, encouraging members to develop their full singing potential.

We meet most Monday nights during school term time at the Modbury Recreation Ground Pavillion, starting at 7.45pm (arrive from 7.30) and aim to finish at 9.45pm, with a break for tea and coffee midway.

We have several “engagements” throughout the year, both locally and as far afield as Bath, raising money for charities such as Modbury Fair and Water Aid. Also we host visits from well-known national singers to improve and extend our repertoire.   

New members are always welcome, no need to be able to read music.
