There is a chance to enjoy the sound of singing on a summer’s evening with Dorset ensemble Dulcima. The close harmony group of singers has been enchanting audiences since their formation in 2010 and will be bringing a sparkling range of song, from classical to popular, to Durweston on 25th June in support of Dorset Wildlife Trust.
What is happening on the night?
Dulcima is led by musical director Linda Brown, a well known and accomplished soloist and teacher based in Child Okeford, who established the all-female choir in February last year. The evening also features solo singer Michael Brown and talented pianist Sam Ryall. With classic songs to celebrate a summer’s evening in Dorset, the evening will support Dorset Wildlife Trust’s 50th Anniversary Appeal to protect the county’s wildlife.
The concert includes some of the most beautiful music for voices, with sacred works including John Brunning’s Pie Jesu and John Rutter’s Gaelic Blessing, and a feast of classic songs, including Blow the Wind Southerly, A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square, Misty and George Gershwin’s Summertime and more recent classics, such as You Raise Me Up, Mamma Mia and Fields of Gold.
How can I get involved?
Dulcima singer Nicki Brunt is Urban and East Dorset Manager at Dorset Wildlife Trust. Nicki said: “This programme promises to be the perfect way to spend a June evening, enjoying beautiful music in a lovely setting and helping to protect our very special county at the same time. Whether you like sacred, classical or upbeat music, we very much look forward to seeing you!”
The Sound of Singing Concert is on Saturday 25th June at 7.30 pm at Durweston Village Hall, overlooking the Stour Meadows. For further information visit www.dulcima.net or phone Nicki Brunt at Dorset Wildlife Trust on 01202 692033 or on 01305 848383 (eves) for tickets, which cost £7.50.
