Celebrating the Queen of Soul.
Conductor - David Kay
Featuring Boh Runga, Bella Kalolo, Vanessa Stacey & Jubilation Choir
The Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra is celebrating the music of soul legend Aretha Franklin with a concert of her greatest songs performed by a trio of fantastic female vocalists. Musical and cultural icon Aretha Franklin had more than 100 chart-topping singles in a career that spanned over five decades.
Boh Runga, Bella Kalolo and Vanessa Stacey will perform lush arrangements of Aretha’s greatest hits with Auckland’s superb a capella gospel choir, Jubilation and the full symphony orchestra. From ‘Think’, ‘Spanish Harlem’, ‘Natural Woman’, ‘Say A Little Prayer’ right through to the fiercest feminist anthem of all time, ‘Respect’—all the classics will be there!
