Welcome to the Mid Wessex Singers!
We are a friendly group of people who enjoy singing choral music in parts. Since our formation in 1999 we have performed two concerts a year, at Christmas and in Spring. Under the guidance of our Musical Director, Graham Coatman, we are now expanding our repertoire and range of events. In 2017 we started an annual ‘Come and Sing Day’, and in 2018 extended our season to include a summer term, with an informal performance of light music to family and friends at our Summer Soiree. Also in 2018 we added an Autumn concert to our schedule.
As a registered charity we also provide entertainment to people in local care homes and sheltered housing and make donations to other charities from the proceeds of our concerts.
We practise on Tuesday evenings during term time from 7.15 to 9.00 p.m in the West Street Church Hall in Somerton. New members are always welcome. We do not hold auditions – just come along one Tuesday evening or contact us for more information. Membership is on a subscription basis, currently £45 per term for the Autumn and Spring terms, paid at the beginning of term or half-termly. The Summer Term is paid on a weekly basis, currently £3.50 a week,
