Kingston Lacy  2016

Blandford 2012

... 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.  The retiring collection raised £400 for St. Michael's and DRMS.  ​A lovely afternoon finished with tea and cake in the hall.   


... lunchtime recital at St. Peter's Church, Bournemouth on Wednesday 9th May 2018.  A wonderful church in which to sing!  



Some memories...

Canzonetta's sister group Wimborne Voices was established in 2009.  Directed by Jackie March,  we are 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. We perform our own arrangements of songs spanning five centuries, from baroque to sacred and folk to twentieth century favourites.  We also have a large song list for the Christmas season and we have performed in the region of twenty gigs or so each year. Wimborne Voices is a not-for-profit organisation.  


In 9 years we have performed at 147 gigs, created our own arrangements of 130 songs,  and raised nearly £3000 for our chosen charities.
