Founded 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 three or four concerts each year in East Dorset and the Isle of Purbeck. We have also been to Jersey and more recently Salisbury Cathedral. We are not-for-profit, raising 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.
It is worth noting that our concert in December will mark our 18 year anniversary!
