Wells Cathedral Choir Association

The WCCA was formed in 2009 by Matthew Owens, the current Organist & Master of the Choristers. The aim of the Association is to maintain a link between the Cathedral and the current choir with ex-choristers, Vicars Choral, choral scholars and organists.

The committee works closely with the Cathedral, the Cathedral School and the Old Wellensian Association to maintain contact with past members of the music establishment, organise reunions and share news.

We have been an active member of the Federation of Old Choristers Association since our foundation in 2009, providing articles and updates to its magazine Once A Chorister.

Our Patron is Peter Price, Bishop of Bath & Wells and the President of the Association is the Dean, The Very Reverend John Clarke. The committee is chaired by Chris Seaton, an ex chorister from 1971-1975.

Next Reunion

Are you a former member of Wells Cathedral Choir?

On Saturday 25 April 2015, the Wells Cathedral Choir Association (WCCA) will host its annual reunion at the Cathedral. Former choir members can join the current Cathedral choir in singing Choral Evensong. The occasion is an opportunity for former choir members to join with colleagues with whom they sang in the Cathedral choir.

Formed in 2009 by Matthew Owens, the current Organist & Master of the Choristers, the aim of the WCCA is to maintain a link between the Cathedral and the current choir with ex-choristers, Vicars Choral, choral scholars, and organists.

The committee works closely with the Cathedral, the Cathedral School, and the Old Wellensian Association to maintain contact with past members of the music establishment, organise reunions, and share news, and has been an active member of the Federation of Old Choristers Association since its foundation in 2009, providing articles and updates to its magazine Once A Chorister.
