Joining The Wells Cathedral Voluntary Choir

If you are interested in joining the Choir we would love to hear from you. You also might like to come and listen to us singing in the Cathedral – see the Forthcoming Events on this page and more information on the Current Activities page.

Choir members are mostly amateur singers and musicians from all walks of life. Members need to be used to singing in a choir, be reasonable sight-readers, and have a blending voice with a good dynamic range.

Rehearsals are held in Wells on Thursday evenings. With 30+ services a year, commitment is important, though we understand that everyone has work or family pressures for which allowances are made.

Although there are no subscription or music charges, members bear their own travel and summer residency costs.

If there are vacancies in your voice part you will be invited to join a few rehearsals. Should you then want to go further you will be asked to audition with our Music Director, Alexander Hamilton.

Please contact our Secretary Simon Birkett for more details.
