Wellington Choral Society: an unauditioned choir in Somerset

The Society’s roots are in the nineteenth century with the Wellington Harmonic Society, which was established in 1871 by William Manley and continued until the 1930s. After a short break in activities it was reformed in 1940 as the Wellington Choral Society.

It is a friendly and welcoming choir incorporating a wide range of age and abilities. Membership is open to everyone with an interest in choral singing.
