Welcome to the Mid Wessex Singers!
We are a friendly group of people who enjoy singing. Since our formation in 1999 we have performed two concerts a year, at Christmas and in Spring.
We sing an exciting, eclectic mix of music from madrigals to musicals, classical to 21st century. Never a dull moment!
As a registered charity we also provide entertainment to people in local care homes and sheltered housing and we contribute to celebrations of special events in the local area. We make donations to other charities from the proceeds of our concerts.
New members are always welcome. We do not hold auditions so why not come along one Tuesday evening for a free taster session? Feel free to contact us for more information.
Where: West Street Church Hall, Somerton TA11 7PR
When: Tuesday evenings 7 – 9 pm during the Autumn and Spring terms.
Membership: £50 per term, paid at the beginning of term or half termly.
One of the great things that the choir brings to us all is being part of a big group of friends who share a love of music and singing. Being part of a community is known to be good for you – as the recent lock-downs have shown us. Singing in a choir is also known to be good for both our physical and mental health.
We cannot wait to meet you!
