Event description
Tis the season to sit back, relax and enjoy your favourite classical pieces live and in concert.

About this event

Join Poole Museum and The Dorset Guitar Society for an evening of acoustic music and festive nibbles in the great hall of historic Scaplen’s Court.

Get into the festive spirit as you enjoy private access to explore the grounds and nibble on festive treats.

Holiday attire is highly encouraged, but not mandatory.

This two hour event will be broken down into two 45 minute sets with a 20-30 minute interlude to allow both musicians and audience members to stretch their legs and enjoy a warm glass of mulled wine. You can expect to hear pieces such as:

Albeniz – Sevilla

Albinoni - Adagio

Sousa - Liberty Bell

Maxwell Davies - Stromness

Scott Joplin – Maple Leaf Rag

Elgar – Chanson de Matin

Shostakovich – Waltz no. 2

Yann Tiersen - Comptine d'un autre été (Amélie)

Sibelius - Alla Marcia

Formed in 1984, the Dorset Guitar Society is one of the largest classical guitar orchestras in the UK. With over 20 members it stages a number of charity concerts each year throughout Dorset and Hampshire. Its strong core of semi-professional players – including guitar tutors and classical guitar enthusiasts – enable the orchestra to perform a range of orchestral ensemble, quartet, trio, duet and solo compositions. The guitar society is also privileged to be under the musical direction of Grant Bocking – previously Director of Music at Queen Elizabeth's School in Wimborne – as a result the orchestra has a wide performance repertoire including Classical Concertos, traditional Spanish compositions and contemporary material such as The Beatles.
