Wimborne Lit Up With the Sound of Soul


by Heidi Stenhouse


Wimborne Minster’s Christmas Lights’ Switch On was given an injection of soul on Saturday as the area’s new and exciting vocal group, Sound of Soul Choir warmly entertained the gathered crowds.


Treating the audience to a mix of modern soul classics and festive favourites with a twist, Sound of Soul demonstrated the complex and beautiful harmonies that their fledgling reputation is already being built on.


Speaking after the performance, one audience member exclaimed, “Their vocals are fantastic.  I thoroughly enjoyed their performance and they left me with a smile on my face.”  This is music to the ears of this talented group who have gone from strength to strength since their launch in September.


But don’t worry if you missed them in Wimborne as there are further opportunities to catch them over the coming weeks: this Saturday 8th December sees Sound of Soul performing at the Bournemouth German Market from 6pm – 7pm, and then on Thursday 20th December Wimborne’s late night shoppers will be in for a treat from 7.30pm.


Come along and join in the fun as the festive period rings out with the Sound of Soul.
