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 Samaritans.

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 musical performance which all involved with the choir are looking forward to immensely and we really hope you can join us in the wonderful De La Salle Theatre, Southbourne, to make it a memorable summer’s evening.

Tickets are available from choristers or via our Box Office Manager, Terry, by emailing (riglerterry@aol.com) or calling him on 07979591410 or 01202 020380.

Priory left Spellbound

A packed Christchurch Priory, including the Mayors of Christchurch, Bournemouth and Wareham, was treated to a very special musical evening yesterday.priory

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.

Bournemouth Male Voice Choir at Christchurch PrioryIt was also another opportunity for our Learn2Sing recruits to perform publicly in what was their first full performance. They all did extremely well and continue to give so much to the choir in terms of their energy, enthusiasm and support.

The star of the show was, undoubtedly our solo performer, Minns Musician of the Year, Rosie Gill. This ten-year-old, who has only been playing the harp for 2 years, completely enraptured the 400 people present during her performances, during which you could have heard a pin drop. She provided us all with some simply magical moments and we wish her continued success which her marvellous talent.

The Priory is a stunning venue to perform within and we eagerly anticipate our next performance there next Spring, in aid of the Samaritans.
