WELLENSIAN CONSORT

The Wellensian Consort has forged a reputation as one of Britain’s finest young chamber choirs, renowned for the vibrancy of its performances. Formed by Christopher Finch in 2009, the Wellensian Consort soon triumphed in the leading British choral competition ‘BBC Choir of the Year’, winning the overall title in 2010 in a competition broadcast on BBC Radio and TV that featured over a hundred of the leading British choirs. The choir has broadcast on BBC Radios 2, 3, and 4, and on BBC 1, and has performed at many of Britain’s leading concert venues and festivals, including the Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Symphony Hall, St John’s, Smith Square, and at the Cheltenham International Music Festival. In doing so the choir has established relationships with many of Britain’s leading composers, including Sir John Tavener, Giles Swayne, Bob Chilcott, and David Bednall. Originally formed to celebrate the 1100-year anniversary celebrations of Wells Cathedral School, the choir consists of alumni and staff of this specialist music school set in the ancient cathedral city of Wells in South West England. The members of the Wellensian Consort now live and work throughout the country, from Falmouth to Glasgow, Cardiff to London, and many are current or former students at British music colleges and universities or hold scholarships in leading cathedral and collegiate choirs.
