Wimborne Music Society incorporates Wessex Singers, Wimborne Singers and Wimborne Minster Chamber Orchestra and is a non-profit making organisation dedicated to the promotion of musical events in Wimborne and further afield.
Wimborne Choral Society is an independently run organisation. New members in all voice parts are always welcome. Please consult Wimborne Choral Society’s website at www.wimbornechoralsociety.org.uk or contact Christopher Dowie (see contact details below).
Wessex Singers was a Chamber Choir of about 40 singers, founded by Christopher Dowie in 1979. It usually gave three main concerts a year, often with Wimborne Minster Chamber Orchestra and on two special occasions with the Bournemouth Sinfonietta. Sadly, the choir was disbanded in June 2012 but it is intended that the name should continue and that the previous members plus friends should come together for one-off events from time to time.
Wimborne Minster Chamber Orchestra is a group of amateur and semi-professional players who regularly play for Concerts with Christopher Dowie in Wimborne Minster. We have a full list of players, but I am always interested to hear of players who have moved to the area who would be prepared to have their names on a reserve list.
