... they filled the church with --
clear, glorious sound ...
Opera, classical music and choir music sung by women's choir La Nova Singers in Dorset

For the 2017 Season, classical chamber choir La Nova Singers will continue to champion new music for female voice choirs. Their summer concert will feature songs by the French baroque composer Jean-Baptiste Lully, alongside sacred music written by contemporary composer Frederick Naftel. Pieces by Purcell, Mozart and Verdi will also feature, offering audiences a musical feast. The singers will be joined once more by musicians of the Parry Ensemble, and by acclaimed pianist Sam Hanson. 

Looking towards the end of the year, the singers will perform a candlelit festive concert in the beautiful acoustic space of St Ambrose Church in Westbourne. With mulled wine and mince pies sure to be on offer, and the promise of spine-tingling harmonies to warm the winter night, this is a date to mark in your diaries now.

Summer Serenade

Save the date for a spectacular concert of Baroque music, and more! La Nova Singers will perform specially arranged opera choruses by the French-Italian Baroque composer Lully, as well as the well-known aria 'Bois Epais'. Continuing the Baroque theme, there are extracts from Purcell's 'Come Ye Sons of Art'; and charming music by Mozart, Verdi and Saint-Saens.
The choir continue their support of new music by presenting three sacred songs by Manchester composer Frederick Naftel. Naftel is inspired by his Jewish heritage, and one of the pieces will be sung in Hebrew. The pieces also feature unusual percussion including tubular bells and a singing bowl.
Featuring La Nova Singers, musicians of The Parry Ensemble, and pianist Sam Hanson. Refreshments including Prosecco will be available in the interval, so we recommend bringing a few friends and enjoying a musical Midsummer's evening out!
