St. Michael's, Colehill July 2018
Canzonetta's sister group Wimborne Voices was established in 2009, the brain-child of Director Jackie March, as an a cappella ensemble performing at lunch clubs, afternoon clubs, flower festivals, charity concerts, lunchtime recitals, weddings, Mothers Union, WI and events throughout East Dorset, performing Jackie's arrangements of songs spanning five centuries, from baroque to sacred, folk to twentieth century favourites and songs for the Christmas season, mostly in three part close harmony.
Wimborne Voices was totally not-for-profit. In nine years they performed 147 gigs, arranged 130 songs and raised nearly £3000 for Wimborne Victoria Hospital, Salisbury Women's Refuge, Parkinson's UK, St. Michael's Church and Dorset Rural Music School.

... an afternoon concert at St. Michael's, Colehill, on Sunday 15th April 2018. It was a great success, with nearly a full church. We sang the full range of song from a 13th century motet to a piece written just last year for the PRAMA 35th anniversary concert in the Minster. We had three accomplished soloists from Dorset Rural Music School in Blandford, accompanied by Dr. Richard Hall on the piano and the retiring collection raised £400 for St. Michael's and DRMS. A lovely afternoon finished with tea and cake in the hall.
... our last lunchtime recital at St. Peter's Church, Bournemouth on Wednesday 9th May 2018.
... our last'songs from the gallery' at Wimborne St. Giles Flower Festival.
