Programme 2: Best of 150 Psalms
With 80 years of exploring the wondrous possibilities of choral music, the Netherlands Chamber Choir (Nederlands Kamerkoor) is among the best in the world. Founded to perform Bach cantatas, the choir has built its reputation on its innovative approach to the canon, commissioning new works and embracing adventurous collaborations. Performing for the very first time in New Zealand, the Netherlands Chamber Choir demonstrates the sublime heights of the collective voice with two very different programmes.

In 2017, the Netherlands Chamber Choir initiated the 150 Psalms project, with four choirs performing 150 psalms from the Old Testament written by 150 composers. Now, specially chosen for the 2020 Festival, the choir presents a selection of these psalms. They sing of justice, humanity, compassion, consolation and liberation.

Chief-Conductor: Peter Dijkstra

There is a pre-show talk on Sunday 8 March at 5.10pm in the Harbourview Lounge, Michael Fowler Centre.

Partnered by: Villa Maria New Zealand
