About  Us

Now in its 44th year, the St. Boniface Concert Society was founded in 1981, following a successful series of concerts presented during the 1300th anniversary of the birth of St. Boniface in 680 AD.

Since then the Society has presented over 200 concerts, bringing outstanding artists such as the now international baritone Simon Keenlyside, cellist Julian Lloyd Webber – followed by cellist Guy Johnston (winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year Award – 2000), the prizewinning Carducci String Quartet and the international concert pianist John Lill to perform in Crediton.

Recent concerts have included those given by The Choir of Clare College Cambridge, The Gesualdo Six and the Kammerphilharmonie Europa.

It has been a policy to encourage up and coming young artists and the Society acknowledges with gratitude the financial support it has receives from musical charities. The Countess of Munster Musical Trust annually enables us to present one of the new artists who have won a place on its prestigious list.

The Philip and Dorothy Green Music Trust (in connection with Making Music) also generously offer young artists for our concerts.

The Society is also grateful for the continued loyalty and support of our Friends.
