The Somerset Singers is a choir of around 80 voices. We rehearse weekly from September to May in the Concert Hall of Sidcot School in Oakridge Lane, Winscombe, North Somerset, see map).
We have two major performances each year, either at St Cuthbert’s Church, Wells, or St Mary’s Church, Wedmore, with concerts at Wells Cathedral every two or three years.
We are always pleased to welcome new members (there are no auditions) – see Contact/Rehearsals 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 Ralph Vaughn-Williams Sea Symphony in Wells Cathedral in May 2016, Mozart’s Requiem and Haydn’s Paukenmesse in St Cuthbert’s Church, Wells in December 2016 and Rutter’s Magnificat & The Sprig of Thyme in St Cuthbert’s Church, Wells in May 2017. You will find full details of our past performances and current programme elsewhere on this site. Important dates are also included in the Dates page. We look forward to seeing you, either to sing with us or in the audience!
