Do join us for a 'trial' by coming along to up to three rehearsal sessions. You will receive a warm welcome and if you let us know you plan to come along, we can keep an eye out for you to show you the ropes.

Concerts

The Society normally presents two concerts each year – one just before Christmas and the second in May. These concerts are normally held in the Wincanton Leisure Centre adjacent to King Arthur’s School, usually at 7.30pm on a Sunday evening.

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. We also live stream rehearsals for those who prefer to stay at home due to COVID considerations.
While members are strongly encouraged to attend as many rehearsals as they can, we do ask that as many members as possible attend the last three rehearsals prior to a concert. The rehearsal on the day of the concert is mandatory - you wouldn't want to miss out on the essential coordination with our professional soloists and orchestra!
