MEET THE TEAM
Co-Founder & Musical Director
Carolyn is our Musical Director and conducts all of our productions, as well as running rehearsals. She helps our chorus and soloists learn the opera, and brings the music to life with our orchestra. She is also one of our co-founders, and has been part of Wedmore Opera since 1988. She loves working with young people, and is glad to know that the future of WO is in safe hands.
Glenise is producing our 2023 production, The Marriage of Figaro. She comes from a career in facilities management and is enjoying the challenge of pulling together local talent into the production team. She has lived in Wedmore for 12 years and has been a member of Wedmore Opera chorus since 2014. She is excited to be helping bring opera back to the village.
Treasurer & Trustee
Denis loves watching our productions but he has usually had a hand in building the set too.
He is a Trustee and the Treasurer of Wedmore Opera. This includes working with the production team to set and manage the budget, keeping the books and preparing end of year accounts.
Founding Artistic Director
Marylin is one of the founders of Wedmore Opera and has directed all but two of our productions. It was Marylin who, with Carolyn and other members of the team, commissioned both Jago and Eleanor Vale. Wedmore Opera wouldn't be Wedmore Opera without Marylin's tireless work in getting the company off the ground.
Chair of Trustees
Neil sings tenor in the chorus. He feels most at home in costume, on stage, singing to an audience that beams back. As Chair of Wedmore Opera’s Board, he helps to ensure we deliver on our purpose of furthering the arts in rural Somerset and providing opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds.
