Experience the magic of male voices and the joy of mixed choirs
The New Zealand Male Choir is performing at Dunstan High School with the Dunstanza Choir on Thursday 23rd September 2021 at 7.00pm.
The joy of singing in a choral setting is what brings the New Zealand Male Choir and the Dunstanza Choir together for an evening of music. The choirs will perform separately and together so you get to hear the widest variety of sound. They will present music from modern shows to opera, from Negro spirituals to an old Irish air, from Sting to Handel. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear mixed choral singing at its best.
The New Zealand Male Choir is an auditioned choir with over 60 members from Southland to North Auckland, of which 34 will be on tour. Conducted by Hawkes Bay’s Joe Christensen, the Choir sing a range of music including classical, folk, waiata, gospel, operatic, popular, jazz, and contemporary.
The Choir have entertained audiences both nationally and internationally for the past 22 years including a number of tours throughout Europe, Australia and Canada. The Choir practises with North Island and South Island groups meeting monthly and collectively meet for tours or concerts three or four times a year. This will be the third concert in an eighteen-day concert tour around the central and lower South Island.
Men interested in joining the choir can make contact via the website: www.nzmalechoir.co.nz or speak to any of its members at the concert.
Dunstanza Choir competed at the Big Sing regional finals in Dunedin earlier this year and were selected to compete at the Big Sing Cadenza competition in Timaru. This means they were one of the top twelve choirs from the South Island who performed in the regional competitions. This is the first time the full Dunstanza Choir had been selected for this honour. Nationally, about 10,000 students from over 250 schools compete every across New Zealand
