The Fishpond Choir, with its eclectic repertoire of world music, is unique. The choir started up in the Fishpond pub in 2001 as a mixed, open access community choir.  Nobody knows if it was the country’s first pub choir but founder members like to think so.


In January 2002, the choir officially began working with husband and wife team Dana ( and Anne de Waal, who had recently left their native South Africa and settled in the area. Dana took over as musical director and tenor soloist and Anne as accompanist. The choir has never looked back.
