The Somerset Singers
Culture > Music and Literature
The Somerset Singers is a choir of around 80 voices.
We rehearse weekly from September to May in the Friends Meeting House in Oakridge Lane, Winscombe, North Somerset, (next to Sidcot School, see map), and have two major performances each year, usually at St Cuthbert’s Church, Wells, with concerts at Wells Cathedral every two or three years.
We are always pleased to welcome new members (there are no auditions) – see website for details, or just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The choir evolved from evening classes at the Kings of Wessex School in Cheddar, and gave its first performance under the direction of Peter Scott-Winfield in 1987. Since then it has gone from strength to strength, singing a wide repertoire of pieces and consistently attracting large audiences.
Our recent performances include the Verdi Requiem in Wells Cathedral in May 2014, and Bach’s Christmas Oratorio in St Cuthbert’s Church, Wells in December 2014.You will find full details of our past performances and current programme elsewhere on the website site.
We look forward to seeing you, either to sing with us or in the audience!
