Guest Musical Director  |  Alice Dicker


Yeovil Chamber Choir is currently seeking a Guest Musical Director for the Summer Term 2024.  Instead of the usual interview + 1 hour audition rehearsal we would like to work with 3 guest MDs for a term each.  We would expect to make a permanent appointment at the end of the year.

If you are interested please follow this link for more information.


We are delighted to welcome Alice as the Guest Musical Director for Yeovil Chamber Choir for the Autumn Term 2023.

Alice grew up in Somerton, and started learning the clarinet age 10. She was one of the earliest members of the Somerton Festival Band, and won the Somerton Arts Festival ‘Young Musician of the Year’ on several occasions. At 13 she passed her grade 8 and subsequently earned a music scholarship to Queens College in Taunton. At 17, while studying for her AS Levels, Alice was awarded the Diploma of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, for performance.

After finishing her sixth form studies, Alice was one of 8 clarinettists accepted to the Royal Welsh College of Music that year. During her time there, she took the opportunity to study many facets of music – from conducting and performance coaching, through to Alexander Technique, and Music Therapy.
After returning to Somerset, Alice played in local bands and orchestras, as well as performing solo concerts including the Somerton Arts Festival, and Music by the Lakes in Thorney. Alice also became the Musical Director for a local concert band, only leaving when she had her youngest daughter.


After a car accident interrupted her instrumental career in 2017, Alice has refocused on the voice. Her students range from beginners to diploma level, currently aged 15 to 76, and she is also the Musical Director for the South Petherton Combined Arts Society Choir.
