Our annual Palm Sunday Concert at Bere Regis on Sunday 9th April 2017 was well attended and the retiring collection raised £325 towards repairs to the church roof. Major works will be starting in the Autumn and we hope to be able to return to St. John's for next year's Palm Sunday Concert, if they are finished in time!
We had a lovely time at St Nicholas Church, Studland on Sunday 7 May 2017 and 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. In fact there was a bit of a scramble to find extra seating and scones! The afternoon made £1076 for Lewis-Manning Hospice. Well done Studland Team!

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 e-mailing list, please get in touch using the Contact Us page. We would love to hear from you. You can also follow us on Facebook.
