Join us

We’re always on the lookout for new members, particularly in the male sections. If you enjoy singing, why not come along to a rehearsal?

We practise in a friendly and supportive atmosphere and aim to develop individual musicianship, as well as present public performances to the highest achievable standards.

If you wish to become a member of SWEC, there is no audition but you must be able to sing and we do ask that you commit to regular rehearsals and participate in the three season concerts.

I felt compelled to express my gratitude for your article in the local gazette that inspired me to join SWEC… rehearsals culminated in a truly joyful experience.” (New member 2016)
