Wessex Women is a small women’s choir based in the South West of England. Our members, who come from Dorset, Devon and Somerset, meet on a regular basis to sing and perform songs from around the world.
Our repertoire is varied and includes acapella versions of folk songs, protest songs, original compositions, blues, jazz, pop, gospel, and a smattering of comic songs.
We often choose songs that are relevant to women’s lives both past and present.
Wessex Women was formed in 1993 after a meeting of like-minds at the Chard Women’s Music Festival.
