Packed house for the Samaritans

Christchurch Priory resounded with Vocal Music as Bournemouth’s Biggest Boy-Band joined forces with The Orlando Singers, Wessex Harmony and Fiona Aucott a local Soprano for an eclectic concert of vocal and choral music. We really enjoyed sharing the stage with these talented and enthusiastic performers and look forward very much to working with them again.  The full house means that a goodly sum was raised in aid of The...

Summer songs

Summer is almost here and means that Bournemouth’s Choir for Men is making preparations for this year’s Annual Concert. However, this year, the event comes with an added twist. Given the range and amount of talent we have within the group, we thought that this year we’d like to complement pieces from the full choir with some showcase performances from smaller groups singing music which is new to the choir’s repertoire. You might even be treated to some choristers revealing their talents for playing musical instruments! It promises to be a rich and varied evening of...

Priory left Spellbound

A packed Christchurch Priory, including the Mayors of Christchurch, Bournemouth and Wareham, was treated to a very special musical evening yesterday. Joining us for this event, which was staged as part of this year’s fundraising activities for the Mayor of Bournemouth’s Charities, were the very fine St John Singers from Salisbury. We had the privilege of performing with them in Salisbury and they once again gave us an extremely polished performance. We are very grateful for them for coming to Christchurch to support the event. It was also another opportunity for our Learn2Sing...

French Connection

  During the summer, a Camerata group flew from Southampton to perform 4 concerts in Limousin, France and local press coverage of the performances continues! It was a fantastic trip, organised by our very own Concert Sectretary, Pierre, whose efforts in the months leading up to the tour were rewarded by some memorable performances. We were very warmly received by the audiences, who now have a number of CDs to remember us by!   The group managed to pack in a fair amount of sightseeing also in between concerts, using an ‘Italian Job’ / ‘Wacky Races’ style of...
