Dorset classical choir La Nova Singers in Christchurch

La Nova Singers is an award-winning female vocal ensemble, performing an eclectic repertoire of classical, sacred, operatic and contemporary choral music. Recognised as the premier women's choir in the Dorset area, the singers are committed to creating exciting classical music concerts.

Under the musical direction of soprano Michelle Nova, La Nova Singers aim to bring the power and beauty of the Bel Canto technique to audiences across the South.

Since their formation in 2004 they have given concerts in venues such as Highcliffe Castle, Christchurch Priory, and the National Trust's Stourhead Gardens.

They made their London performance debut in December 2014, singing for The Law Society at their headquarters in Chancery Lane.
