What People Say

Dear Wendy, Kirsty and all you lovely ladies from the Somerset Hills! Wasn’t it a great evening! And thank you for making it happen. I can listen to your singing endlessly - just my cup of tea. ‘The Somerset Hills Chorus sang beautifully with, I thought, some lovely arrangements. Their timing, note accuracy, diction, dynamics, and enthusiasm for what they were singing really shone out. And the audience was appreciative, alert and responsive. Can’t say fairer than that! So thanks again for a great time. Every good wish Charles June 2017

Just to say what a wonderful performance you gave us at our Somerset Wine & Cheese evening. People were saying it was one of the best events we have had and when can you come again! What a lovely friendly group of ladies you are - the atmosphere you created felt so personal but at the same time so professional. Your voices were beautifully blended and the repertoire had something for everyone. Thank you so much! Julia, Goathurst Village Hall June 2017

I would just like to say a huge thank you to you and the Somerset Hills Chorus for your support with the wonderful music at the Macmillan Christmas Fair. The feedback about the choir has been lovely, the music was really well received. December 2016

I just wanted to message you to say thank you so much for coming along on Friday evening and performing at our fair. You were absolutely fabulous and we had some fantastic feedback from stallholders and visitors. Please pass on my thanks to the rest of the chorus; we will most definitely keep you in mind for any other events. Thank you again, Emma - Volunteer, Macmillan November 2016

We REALLY enjoyed our evening with you last Saturday, and certainly learned a lot from your very professional performance.
Thank you so much for coming over to entertain us, and we would be delighted to have the opportunity to sing with you again. Every good wish from all the Wyndham Singers November 2016

Me and my partner got married on the 9th of January and had the most amazing day ever. It was made even more special by having the Somerset Hills Chorus sing for us on our special day. I’ve always wanted a choir to sing at our wedding and when I found Wendy , Cynthia and the rest of the choir I was so excited. They were so professional and did everything that we asked of them. We kept them a secret until the wedding day! everyone was so surprised and absolutely loved them. Walking down the aisle to the choir singing just made the day complete. We really can’t thank them enough for everything. We would highly recommend them to anyone else who is looking for a choir. We thank them for making our special day even more perfect. All of our love Adam and Kimberley Russell xxx January 2016

I just wanted to say thank you so much for letting us come to see you and hear you sing last night. It was really lovely to meet you and to meet everyone else. You are all genuinely really lovely people and you made us feel so welcome. You sing beautifully and I can see how much hard work and dedication you all must put in. Hearing you all sing was amazing and actually bought a tear to my eye. We can’t wait to have you at our wedding. it’s going to be amazing. August 2015

We really did enjoy last night so much and are even more excited about our wedding now, knowing that you will all be a part of it. We will let you know as soon as possible about our song choices, although I would love to have them all sung!! I really want other people to know how brilliant you all are. I’m itching to tell my family and friends!They will love you! Thank you again for letting us hear you last night. August 2015

This is just to say thank you for the lovely programme of songs you performed yesterday for the ‘Contemplate for Cancer’ event at Queen’s. It seemed very strange not to be able to applaud you but your singing was so good and so enjoyable! Best wishes Barbara and Jane Hamlin April 2014 Thank you so much for coming and entertaining us so well at the Wellington W.I.’s first birthday party! You all sang beautifully and everybody loved it! I have received a lot of comments from members about how wonderful you were. Thank you for making our evening very special…Wellington W.I. January 2014-01-21

The ladies of the Somerset Hills Chorus were superb. Please send our compliments to the Somerset Hills Chorus. We were somewhat in awe of their faultless intonation, soaring harmonies and well-judged dynamics - and well chuffed when they joined in with our rather more… rambunctious thrashing. A lovely bunch of ladies. From Bridgwater Methodist Church Christmas Tree Festival, Dec 2013

It was a pleasure to hear all you ladies singing yesterday, and when my Mother heard your rendition of ‘wind beneath my wings’ there were a few tears. After hearing you sing, it would be great if you could all come back to the Blue Ball at some point in the new year to sing again ……December 2013

Please make sure you all keep singing, keep smiling and keep bringing joy into the lives of others I can’t begin to tell you much we enjoyed watching and listening to you all perform. The energy amongst you and the smiles on your faces as you sang gave a clear indication to everyone of just how much you enjoy performing. This in turn was transferred to each and every customer in the shop who paused and stopped to listen to you sing, it was so lovely to see everyone in the farm shop smiling because of you! You and the ladies are so very talented, in just one word you were ‘Amazing’!
Dan, Dec 2013
