Pakuranga Choral Society’s first concert for 2020 features Vivaldi’s ever-popular “Gloria”. Perhaps the best-known Baroque choral work, this performance features Ella Ewen and Dilys Fong as our soloists and Michael Bell on organ. Rounding out the programme is a group of gospel spirituals and a piece by conductor David Hamilton. The concert will also feature as guest choir Grammarphonics from Auckland Grammar School. Like other music groups, Pakuranga Choral Society went into recess during the lockdown and resumed rehearsals mid-June, delighted to be singing again.
