Support Somerset Chamber Choir

Somerset Chamber Choir is a registered charity that receives no public funding - it depends on the support of its Friends, the income from ticket sales and the goodwill of its members and volunteers.


Did you know that it can cost in excess of £15,000 to put on a concert in Wells Cathedral? Or that ticket revenue may reach only about half of this amount? In addition to our regular programme of performances we have ambitious plans to develop and strengthen our activities for younger singers in the county, which will only be possible with additional investment.


If you like what we do, there are many ways you can support the choir.


One of the most popular ways to support the choir is by becoming a member of the Friends Scheme.

As a Friend you will receive advance publicity and priority booking for concerts, a twice-yearly newsletter, your name in major concert programmes and an invitation to post-concert drinks with the choir. Other benefits are also available, such as free and discounted tickets.


The choir is fortunate in performing to an enthusiastic and passionately committed audience, and the Friends are at the heart of that audience. They support the choir, and high quality music-making in Somerset, through their generous subscriptions and donations.

Joining the Friends Scheme costs from £10 per year. Find out more here


There are a number of other ways to support the choir, a few ideas are listed on the right hand side of this page. If you think you may be able to help, then please contact us using the form.


If you are unable to contribute financially, please support us by being our biggest advocates, telling your friends about the Somerset Chamber Choir and encouraging people to buy tickets for concerts.


The choir is extremely grateful to all our Friends and Supporters.
