Somerset Chamber Choir

Somerset Chamber Choir Somerset Chamber Choir

Since its formation in 1984 by members of the Somerset Youth Choir, the choir has continued to extend its expertise in an ever widening repertoire. From music of medieval times through to the present day, the choir has provided its audience with impressive programmes of the finest choral music sung to the highest standard. The choir continues to work with some of the finest orchestras and soloists in the country, aiming to bring music-making of the highest quality to Somerset.

Five or six weekends of intensive rehearsals during the year culminate in the two concerts per annum, one at the turn of the year, usually in King`s College Chapel, Taunton, and one in the summer at Wells Cathedral. Most of the choir`s sixty or so members have their roots in Somerset, although many now study or work elsewhere in the country, and it is a mark of the choir`s musical and social success that many members travel considerable distances to take part in rehearsals and concerts and also that the choir continues to recruit from the county`s most talented young singers.

You can find out more about the choir and read about upcoming and past concerts at the choir's website.
