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. Click here to read our most recent newsletter.
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.
We are always very happy to hear from old members of the music establishment, particularly to receive photographs and contributions for future newsletters and communications. Please contact [email protected]
The next reunion will take place on Saturday 27 April 2013
15.30 – Meet in the North Transept by the clock
15.45 – Rehearse with the Cathedral choir
15.15 – Evensong sung by ex-choristers and the current choir
18.30 – Meet at the Fountain Inn for drinks followed by an informal dinner at 19.30
WCCA reunions have proved popular in the past, and are an excellent way of meeting with old friends from your time in the choir at Wells Cathedral, singing evensong, and enjoying a relaxed evening meal. If you would like to attend the reunion, please email the WCCA Secretary [email protected]
