The Somerset Chamber Choir includes a number of singers who have studied or are currently studying music at Music College or University. Many of these are active in the music profession as performers, teachers and administrators and the professional experience which they bring to the choir is both a considerable resource and strength.
At present the Choir includes people working in radio and television, for a concert agency, in arts administration and a number who perform regularly in a professional or semi-professional context, e.g., a professional accompanist, several choral conductors, semi-professional singers and orchestral players.
Several Choir members who joined whilst still at school have used their experience gained within the Choir to further their education, including a Choral Scholarship to Trinity College, Cambridge and another becoming a member of the Royal Holloway Choir.
The regular involvement of the majority of members in other choirs of a high standard elsewhere in the United Kingdom is a support to the corporate expertise of the Choir and a key factor in the Choir's ability to tackle often complex and demanding works.
