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 several thousands of pounds for Wimborne Victoria Hospital, Salisbury Women's Refuge, Parkinson's UK, St. Michael's Church and Dorset Rural Music School.
