Accompanist
Sam Nickels

Musical Director
David Williams

Sam studied music at the Birmingham Conservatoire, where he especially enjoyed working with singers in masterclasses, recitals and competitions.  

He also accompanied several choirs and played for dance classes at The Royal Ballet School.  In 2011, Sam made a brief TV appearance on BBC’s ‘The Choir’, when he accompanied the Military Wives Choir as they sang ‘Thank you for the music’ to choirmaster/presenter Gareth Malone.

Since then he has regularly performed with the Lympstone Military Wives Choir and now we are very fortunate to have him as our regular accompanist.

David has been involved in Church music for most of his life, starting as a choirboy at St Mary Magdalene, Upton, Torquay, where he served in various capacities for over 46 years and was both Church Administrator and Organist and Choirmaster at the time of leaving in 1995.

David has been Musical Director since 1995 and fulfilled the same role for the Torbay Police Choir from February 1980 until September 2000.


For many years he was a member of the Chaplaincy Team, as organist, at HMP Channings Wood and was Musical Director of the New Creation Choir (South Devon) from 1989-2005, performing in such places as the Fairfield Halls, Croydon and the Royal Albert Hall
