Updated Listing Saturday 6 April, 7.30-9.30pm
Bournemouth Male Voice Choir at Milton Abbey, Milton Abbas DT11 0BZ
We are delighted to welcome back this excellent Choir of accomplished male voices. Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy the choral range of Bournemouth Male Voice Choir in the unique acoustic ambience of The Abbey at Milton. The choir’s inspiration comes from many different places; from the work of Chor Leoni to The King’s Singers, Primus Amabile Men’s Ensemble, and Orphei Drängar. They are committed to new music and believe that the future of choral music depends on new compositions being written for choirs and (in the case of male choirs) this is vital to their survival. In recent years, they have given European premières of music by contemporary composers from the USA.
Adults £12, Under-18s £6.
