An a cappella close harmony choir - based in Shaftesbury, Dorset, UK
With its roots firmly in jazz standards, Palida explores a wide range of musical styles, from contemporary classical through to madrigals and folk.
Led by Karen Wimhurst and based in Shaftesbury, this choir offers a challenging and stimulating experience for singers. Palida performs regularly in a range of local concert venues as well as the occasional theatre production.
During the 2020 Covid-19 Lockdown the choir have been meeting on Zoom to learn songs.
Working alone and sometimes in small groups (whiles respecting pandemic restrictions) we have been able to create 3 virtual choir videos.
It has been a whole lot of fun and kept us all busy. Here is our latest Christmas offering - The Joy of Sox composed especially for the choir by our Musical Director - Karen Wimhurst.
