which is exactly what we are – a lively group of singers!

It was so good to get together with other choirs and sing live.

We were thrilled to bring home two trophies - the Bradbeer Cup for Community Choirs and the Lush Signs trophy for Musical Theatre.

The adjudicator, Joy Robinson, commented on our performances of

Never Enough from the Greatest Showman & We are the Voices by Jim Papoulis,

You'll be Back from Hamilton & You Will Be Found from Dear Evan Hansen:

"You sang with conviction and a sense of style."

"You have a super dynamic range."

"Great energy and attack."

"You gave an assured performance." 

New members are warmly welcomed.  Thinking of joining us?  Please get in touch, we'd love to hear from you.

"We are just one happy family..."

"I not only found fun, but long-lasting friendship."

"We work hard, some of the music is challenging, but there is always an element of fun."

"I love being part of a successful group with like minded others."

"Being in the choir has definitely improved my self confidence..."

"When you’re singing, all worries go out of the window..."


Vivamente Voices is an established choir based in Wimborne .  Started in 2013 by local music teacher and musical director, Sheila Dursley, the choir rehearse regularly throughout the year, putting on a number of concerts to raise money for local charities and the occasional flash mob!  In previous years we have competed in the Bournemouth Music Competitions Festival, coming runners-up in our class in 2013, finalists in 2016 and 2018 winners of the Egbert Mudge Cup for musical theatre. 


In March 2019 we competed in the New Milton Music Festival, winning the Bradbeers Trophy in the Adult Choir class and more recently won two classes in the Bournemouth Music Competitions Festival; retaining the Egbert Mudge Cup for musical theatre and also winning the Bright Cup for choral singing.

Our repertoire is varied and includes 'classic' pop, songs from the shows, inspirational songs, some jazz and gospel.  We strive for great singing whilst having fun!

We'd love to welcome you to our very friendly choir.  Rehearsals are currently at St John's Church in Wimborne every Wednesday evening during term time.  We meet at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start and sing until 9.00pm.  Do get in touch via our contact page if you'd like to come along.
