Cantabilé is a friendly and lively choir which has been running now for over 10 years.

We consist of around 40 mixed voices, and sing mainly sacred choral works, usually accompanied by an orchestra.

Our Musical Director is Jean Holt

We rehearse once a week on a Thursday evening at 7.30pm, and perform to large audiences 2-3 times a year, usually in St Luke's Church, Parkstone, where we currently practice.

Last year we had 3 very successful concerts with the lovely 'Nelson Mass' by Haydn and Schubert's Mass in G on 24th April; our usual summer mix on 10th July included 'A Little Jazz Mass' by Bob Chilcott; and our final concert for the year was a lovely Christmas mix of carols, Vaughan Williams' 'Fantasia on Christmas Carols' and Poulenc's 'Gloria' on 11th December.  This year we had our first concert on 9th April with John Rutter's Requiem and Vivaldi's Magnificat.

If you came along to any of the concerts, we do hope you enjoyed the evening.  Our second concert for 2017 will be on Sunday 9th July - details later, but do come along.
