Somerset Hills Chorus

Somerset Hills Chorus is a Taunton based women's singing group who have a varied repertoire arranged in 4 part harmony (A capella).

The chorus has been singing together since 1992 and we meet at Bishops Hull Community School, Taunton on Thursday evenings from 7.30pm – 10pm.

We are members of Sweet Adeline’s International based in Tulsa Oklahoma, U.S.A. and regularly take part in local and national choir competitions.

As well as staging our own shows we also perform all over Somerset and the surrounding areas at weddings, charity and social events.

Please get incontact if you are interested in booking us or joining our chorus. You can also keep up to date with where and when we will be singing on the Diary page.

Castle Cary Carnival (October 2017)

The weather was kind to us as we sang outside on an October afternoon prior to carnival in Casle Cary. It was lovely to sing in Kirstie’s home town and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Full Houses and standing ovations were the order of the day at our recent show in Wellington.

We delivered two shows on 12 August – an afternoon matinee and an evening performance - both of which played to full houses of very appreciative audiences.

Ably supported by Solo singer Tommy Thompson, Duo Alice and James Gilgrist and TFA Showdance, our “Showtime” provided a wide range of entertainment for the audiences to enjoy.

Tommy sang a number of songs including famous “classics” by Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jnr, and did a beautiful duet with Kirstie our Director. Alice and James sang lovely folk music. Ashley and friends entertained us with some wonderful modern dance and our small group from within chorus sang some of their ballads and up tempo songs.

The show gave us the opportunity to showcase some of our extensive repertoire including a number of new songs and we also sang our convention songs towards the end of the show.

Our good friend “Chalky” Cox compered the shows amusing the audiences with his stories and jokes to much hilarity. We all had a great time and the audience response just spurred us on. A lovely occasion!

We were delighted to welcomed the Mayor and Mayoress of Wellington (Gary and Bee James)and the Mayor and Consort of Taunton ( Hazel and Adrian Prior Sankey) as our guests, also local Councillors Andrew and Jackie Govier.

Our thanks go to our organising committee, the other acts, and Rob on lighting and sound. Tina Poltimore provided all the stage props to create a lovely garden party effect with her husband Henry providing the transport and muscles! Many thanks to them both.
