Cantabilé is a friendly and lively choir which has been running now for over 11 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 3 times a year, usually in St Luke's Church, Parkstone, where we currently practice.

Our  3 concerts for this year were the usual lovely mix of sacred choral music and lighter pieces.  Our first concert in April was John Rutter's wonderful Requiem and Vivaldi's Magnificat.  Then our summer concert in July was a fun mix from Bob Chilcott, Karl Jenkins, Will Todd, Howard Goodall, Mozart and a superb piano treat from our Musical Director and her husband, with Richard Holt playing his own arrangement from West Side Story and he and Jean giving us a thrilling duet.  The final Christmas concert had a variety of carols, including a new one written by Richard Holt, along with pieces by Finzi, Vivaldi and Faure.

If you came along to any of the concerts, we do hope you enjoyed the evening.  Our next concert will be in the Spring of 2018 and will include Mozart's Requiem.
