This letter is from the Director of Music to all the members of the Wincanton Choral Society

I still reflect on our May concert with real delight. The wonderful colour of the orchestral sound, stunning singing from the soloists and grand, imposing singing from you yourselves. I am so pleased that the programme was enjoyed by so many and that the familiar and the unfamiliar became good friends.

The coming season brings with it more exciting music, Vivaldi's 'Gloria' & Fauré's 'Cantique de Jean Racine', plus festive music for December followed by Mendelssohn's towering composition 'Elijah' next May. As we did last December we will have Jackie and a string quartet as the mainstay of our accompaniment with the requisite Soprano soloists for the Vivaldi. May brings with it the glories of the orchestral experience once again with an array of soloists to 'play' all the parts.

Simon Twiselton
