"Bourne2Sing" was established in February 2013 by our three Co-Founders >> Douglas 

Bloom, Nikki Budd and Alan Beach.  You will already have seen profiles for Nikki and Alan

previously so here is a little information about Douglasour initial Musical Director. 

 

Unfortunately, due to ill health, Doug had to retire at Christmas 2016 and was succeeded as Musical Director by Alan until mid 2018.  Alan has now become Deputy Conductor with Nikki assuming the mantle of Musical Director.  

 

Doug has had a long and illustrious musical career conducting Choirs and during a time span of over 40 years he and his Choirs have helped to raise in excess of £500,000-00 for Charities and Good Causes.

On behalf of Carol Turner, the Mayor of Wareham, and myself I would like to say thank you for performing your Concert at Lady St Mary Church last Saturday evening. The reaction of the audience was very positive - people enjoyed the variety and familiarity of the music and the overall presentation. Please come again.
Huge thanks to “Bourne2Sing” Choir who put on a terrific Concert, sounding better than ever. Everyone was very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the show.

I hope that we can do another Concert at West Moors together, probably later
on next year. ( Already booked for 2020. )

Thanks and best wishes to you all.
“Great evening ! Bourne2Sing should be proud, so many beautiful songs. Well done !

“Thoroughly enjoyable evening with a great programme !”

“A lovely evening that sparked so many memories for me. A fab night !"

“A lovely evening.”

“An entertaining evening of uplifting songs ! Lovely company and an unexpected treat or two - wine and snacks ! Well done “Bourne2Sing”. It was a pleasure to come and see you all perform.”

It was a pleasure to welcome you all to St. Mark's Church, Highcliffe. The number turning up meant that some of us had to dash out during the performance to buy more wine !!

Everyone was very pleased with the evening and remarked how professional the Choir was and how they enjoyed the varied programme and of course your Soloist, Dianne Tompkins. The Concert’s success can be gauged from the fact that I have been asked to book the Choir again for 2020.
We were all delighted to welcome "Bourne2Sing" and thank you for putting on such a superb show which we all appreciated very much. Everyone was talking about it this morning at Church, saying how much they enjoyed it. Thank you for all of your help and support.

We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future and I look forward to seeing the Choir again at St. John's Church, Broadstone on the 13th October 2018 when we hope to repeat the success.

Best wishes and grateful thanks.


Many thanks to the "Bourne2Sing" Choir for your superb performance last Friday. I am sure you could tell it was enjoyed by all.
What a wonderful evening it was on Saturday night – many of the audience said how much they enjoyed it and are already asking when you can return to entertain them again ?!

One guest said "It was absolutely marvellous, I thoroughly enjoyed it." Another commented on "The beautiful harmonies" and asked "When are they coming back ?"

Philip, our CEO, said "Those of our members who were able to attend, being visually impaired, really enjoy listening to music and were very pleased that they knew most of the songs that you performed."

Please convey our thanks to all the Choir for such a professional performance and enjoyable programme. Please let us know if you would ever consider performing another concert for us, possibly in 2019 ? I know you get booked up very early and are very busy, but we would be thrilled if we could welcome you back sometime in the future.

Thank you for your help and co-operation- it has been a pleasure working with you.

CONCERT AT CRANE VALLEY GOLF CLUB ON THE 2nd JUNE 2018

 

“Bourne2Sing", an all male Choir, performed this Concert at Crane Valley Golf Club, Verwood in aid of “New Forest & District Sailability”. This is the chosen Charity of both the Golf Club Captains – Val Stevens for the Ladies and Stewart Rennie for the men.

 

It was a wonderful warm evening and the gentlemen of “Bourne2Sing” did not disappoint their audience. They sang a range of popular songs and soon had the audience joining in.

 

In addition to the Choir there was a guest appearance by Soprano Soloist Dianne Tompkins accompanied by Val Robertson which added a feminine touch to the occasion. The Clubhouse was full to capacity and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

 

Gentlemen of the Choir - our sincere thanks to you all, we have raised £1,110 towards our Charity and we are both delighted. Keep up the good work !   

 

Val and Stewart
