Somerset Chamber Choir is a registered charity that receives no public funding - whenever we stage a concert, we have to hire a venue, book professional orchestra, instrumentalists and soloists and cover all the other expenses associated with running such large-scale events.

This is incredibly expensive (so much so that ticket revenue never meets the cost of our Wells concerts with orchestra, even when these sell out), so it is no exaggeration to say that we could not continue to stage the quality of concerts we do without the support of our Friends.


Many people like to support such high-quality music-making in Somerset by joining our hugely popular Friends Scheme.


In return, all friends receive the benefit of an exclusive priority booking period for concerts (which is vital for getting the best seats in the house for these popular concerts) and many other benefits.


The choir currently has more than 100 friends, and is enormously grateful to them all. To find out what you are missing, please take a look at the various benefits you could receive below, and if you are interested in joining this group of friends, you can join or send an enquiry on the right.


Why not sign up today?
