Singing Safari - September 2010

On Saturday 4th September we visited several of the smaller churches in the Marshwood Vale to sing a short programme from our repertoire. Each informal performance lasted around 30 minutes.

The route took us along some of the narrowest winding lanes in West Dorset through the most beautiful countryside. Our first stop was Fishponds where we had a quick glimpse at the medieval stew ponds before moving on to Hawkchurch and lunch at the excellent Old Inn. Suitably refreshed, we wound our way to Wootton Fitzpaine and finally to Whitchurch Canonicorum.

It was clear that the day was enjoyed by both choir and audiences and we are already looking forward to next year’s opus. A collection for Julia’s House, Dorset's children's hospice, was taken throughout the day.

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of our Safari - route-masters, churchwardens, audiences and singers as well as our kind hosts for lunch and tea.

Fine music can enhance any occasion - if you would like Parnham Voices to provide music at your event, be it a wedding, dinner, memorial service or fund-raising concert, please email
