Our sister group Wimborne Voices

is recruiting for a second soprano.  

Canzonetta is recruiting for a Second Alto - yes, a 'low' Alto! -  to join our friendly team. Please get in touch with your voice type and experience.  An enthusiasm for singing close harmony in a small group is essential . Sight Reading would be an advantage. We rehearse in Wareham  approx. 10 Saturdays each year and our 4 concerts annually are usually on Sunday afternoons.  Are we just what you've been searching for?   We'd love to hear from you.

Our last concert...

We had a lovely time at St Nicholas Church, Studland on Sunday 7 May 2017 and thank you to all who came along. We had a full house!  The weather was kind to us and we had cream teas afterwards in the hall and outside in the glorious Purbeck sunshine.  We are delighted to tell you the afternoon made £1076  for Lewis-Manning Hospice.

Formed in 2004, this East-Dorset-based singing ensemble enjoys nothing more than travelling around the beautiful Dorset countryside, singing in the delightful churches of Dorset and enjoying tea and cake afterwards!  We cover a varied range of singing styles from baroque and sacred pieces to complex folk arrangements, spirituals to fabulous arrangements of twentieth century songs; close harmony, a cappella or with piano accompaniment. 

Canzonetta presents four concerts each year and our adventures thus far have taken us through East Dorset, the Isle  of Purbeck and even as far as Jersey. En route this not-for-profit organisation raises funds to support the local community. If you would like to learn more or you would like to join our mailing list, please get in touch.  We would love to hear from you!
