On Sunday 31 March at 2:30pm at the Hamilton Gardens, Hamilton Civic Choir will kick off their 2019 season with a free concert which promises to be an afternoon of fun for all to enjoy. Titled “Antipodes”, Hamilton Civic Choir will present a choral programme consisting of a mixture of exciting and vibrant choral music of New Zealand and Australia.
Antipodes will feature a thoughtfully woven programme of the Trans-Tasman spirit and camaraderie and will include an array of New Zealand works such as John Ritchie’s Lord, when the sense, Richard Oswin’s Gallipoli Settings, Douglas Mew’s NZ Folk Songs and Ghosts, Fire, Water, and Chris Artley’s O Magnum Mysterium. The programme will also feature Australian works such Stephen Leek’s Ngana, and Iain Grandage’s Three Australian Bush Songs.
The Hamilton Civic Choir will also present the New Zealand premiere of the award-winning composition Other Plans by Australian Lisa Young, bringing to life the breath-taking art form of South Indian konnakol (vocal percussion) in a bold new way. So what are you waiting for? Come and celebrate the end of summer at the Hamilton Gardens for a free Antipodean concert by Waikato’s premiere choir.
