La Nova Singers perform an Afternoon Concert with Cream Tea

Sunday 7 July 2024
2.15 pm

Tickets: £28 plus booking fee
All tickets include full concert and cream tea.

The Music

Our musical director Michelle has chosen a variety of beautiful songs, by composers including Mozart, Gilbert & Sullivan and Ola Gjeilo. New for this year, we are learning a choral arrangement of George Gershwin’s ‘Summertime‘. More details will be added here as our set list evolves.

The Cream Tea

To make this concert the perfect afternoon treat, a delicious cream tea is included in the price of your ticket! This will consist of:

  • Two scones
  • Cream and Jam
  • Strawberries
  • A selection of sandwiches
  • Tea (including fruit teas) or coffee

The refreshments will be served during a break in the concert, and can be enjoyed at your table. The bar will also be open if you wish to purchase additional drinks.

The Venue

We will be performing in the old library of Merley House, an 18th-century Georgian manor house located near Wimborne, Dorset. Seating will be at tables, cabaret style, so that you will have a good view of the concert but also be able to enjoy your refreshments. We have limited ticket numbers to suit the size of the space, and ensure everyone has room to enjoy their afternoon.

La Nova Singers have performed at Merley several times in recent years, and we are pleased to have it in our regular line-up of classical music concert venues, here in Dorset.
