Wells Cathedral Oratorio Society (WCOS) was founded in 1896 and is one of the South West’s leading choral societies. It performs the great choral works with some of the UK’s finest soloists and professional orchestras in the glorious surroundings of ‘The Queen of English Cathedrals’.
Numbering around 100 voices, WCOS gives three concerts a year under the direction of Alexander Hamilton, Acting Director of Music at Wells Cathedral.
In past years, the society has performed many of the major oratorios and choral concert works.
WCOS hosts an annual Come and Sing day, to which any singers are welcome to learn and perform a work from scratch, in just a few hours.
Chorus rehearsals are on Monday evenings in the Cathedral from September to June and generally follow Wells Cathedral School's term times.
New singers are always welcome to apply to join the choir. Why not join us? Visit our website www.wcos.org.uk
