Wellington Choral Society were delighted to perform our first concert 18 months away on Saturday 23 October 2021 of The Creation by Franz Joseph Haydn. This was a resounding success and delighted the audience and comments were fulsome:
"I would like to express my appreciation to the Wellington Choral Society for the Haydn concert on Saturday 23rd October. It was a wonderfully uplifting experience and was received with much enthusiasm by the audience. I was particularly impressed that one person who had not heard the Creation before praised all aspects of the performance. Many thanks to all of you."
"I thought the choir were in good voice, the harmonies were simply beautiful. I appreciate that many of the passages were extremely challenging but the choir sailed through with style. The reduced numbers did not appear to impact the performance "
We are now looking forward to singing a programme of carols for the Sing for Somerset Carol Service at Wells Cathedral on Saturday, sponsored by the NSPCC. The service is free to attend with the hope that people will give generously to the NSPCC at Christmas Time. We also plan to sing carols to support the switching on of the Christmas Lights in Wellington on Saturday 27 November 2021. Do come and listen and join in.
We have an exciting programme of choral music planned for Spring 2022 season. We are finally going to perform the Armed Man - A Mass for Peace by Karl Jenkins and Faure's Requiem on Saturday 26 March 2022 which we previously cancelled in March 2020 at the start of the pandemic. All our concerts are held at St John the Baptist Church, Wellington. We are looking forward to welcoming back our loyal audiences and to welcoming new. If you enjoy choral music, come and hear us.
