Somerset Singers

The Somerset Choral Society (previously Somerset Singers) is a choir of around 55 voices. We rehearse weekly from September to May in the Concert Hall of Sidcot School in Oakridge Lane, Winscombe, North Somerset. 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) – just email info@somersetsingers.co.uk.

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, Rutter’s Magnificat & The Sprig of Thyme in St Cuthbert’s Church, Wells in May 2017 and Mendelssohn’s Elijah in St Mary’s Church, Wedmore in December 2017.
