THE CHOIR

The Purbeck Arts Choir is open to anyone who wants to sing! We presently have 60+ members in all voice parts (SATB). Under the inspirational and encouraging baton of our conductor Jay Buckle we sing mainly (but not exclusively) 4-part choral music and previous experience is helpful but not essential. For information about “what, where and when” etc. please go to the ABOUT page.

Use the link below to hear us sing an anthem by local composer David Fawcett.

OUR CONCERTS

We normally have two concerts each year – December and April/May but are also involved with many other events during the year with local musicians and singers. To find out more, check our COMMUNITY page.

The Purbeck Arts Choir began as a madrigal group over 50 years ago and was one of the earliest members of the Dorset Guild of Singers. We remain one of the three core Guild choirs and we perform a major choral work every two years with other guest choirs at the Lighthouse Poole.

OUR EVENTS

Christmas Concert

Handel’s “Messiah” tops the bill for our Christmas Concert on Saturday 8th December in St Mary’s Church, Swanage. It is always a favourite for choir and audience alike and rehearsals start in September, so do get in touch if you would like to join the choir for the autumn term to sing with us.
