Resources

Music is provided free of charge by the library. Members are able to purchase their own copies through the society if they wish. Members are encouraged to annotate their music during practice with a soft pencil. All annotations must be erased before returning music after a concert.

Concerts

The Society presents two concerts each year – one just before Christmas and the second in May. These concerts are held in the Wincanton Leisure Centre adjacent to King Arthur’s, usually at 7.30pm on a Sunday evening. The programme for our next concert includes: • Mass in C - Beethoven • Welten singen Dank und Ehre - Beethoven • Insanae et vanae curae - Haydn • Ave Verum Corpus - Mozart

Rehearsals

The Society’s season runs from September to May with a break at Christmas/New Year. Rehearsals are held every Monday evening in the Performance Enhancement Centre of King Arthur’s Community School, Wincanton from 7.15pm to 9pm including a 10 minute break; there is ample parking space available.
While members are strongly encouraged to attend as many rehearsals as possible, the only rule governing attendance is the requirement that members must attend the last three rehearsals prior to a concert if they wish to sing in that concert.
