Sweet sound of Honiton

A NEW choir has been formed in Honiton and it’s got soul.

Sweet Honi ‘n’ Soul is a community choir for the Honiton and East Devon area, specialising in contemporary arrangements of rock classics.

Honiton was selected as a base for the choir, not only because it lacked an open access community choir but also because of the strategic location of the town.

There is no other rock/pop choir in the area. The choir is led by Andy Hague, who has a wide range of experience. He directed music performance studies at Richard Huish College until 2010 and also ran the Sidmouth Gospel Choir.

He leads a variety of choirs in his home area of Axminster and Lyme Regis.

In the 1970s and 1980s Andy worked as a rock arranger and producer.

He believes that everybody has a voice and that finding it in the context of a choir is a socially liberating and personally fulfilling experience.
