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

We are now cautiously rehearsing again on Wednesdays at St John's Church in Wimborne.

Please get in touch if you'd like to join us!

We are also thrilled to be able to tell you that we now have some dates to share with you this Christmas.  Details on our EVENTS tab.

"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..."

ABOUT OUR CHOIR

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.
