Celebrate 75 years of masterful music-making, with a very special presentation...

Hamilton Civic Choir presents a grand celebratory concert to mark its 75th year of high-quality choral performance in the community. This spectacle will bring together Tron Songsters Children's Choir and the All Hallows Chapel Choirs of Southwell School to first present a programme of shorter pieces such as Eriks Esenvalds’ “Stars” and New Zealand classic “Pokarekare Ana”. The second half will be a combined performance of Carl Orff’s epic “Carmina Burana” featuring all the choirs, two pianos, chamber percussion and international soloists - Soprano Natasha Wilson, Tenor Oliver Sewell and Baritone Christian Thurston.

Orff’s secular cantata is an Everest for any choir, a setting of 24 poems - a Hymn to ‘Fortune: Empress of the World’, pastoral scenes, comedic tavern songs, courtly love songs and romantic epics (in both Latin, ‘Middle High’ German and touches of ancient French) - all set to a unique blend of contemporary and ancient harmonic languages. This is the source of the well-known “O Fortuna”, found in many movie soundtracks from “Excalibur” to “G-Force”. Certainly a piece that will be loved by our avid audience here in Hamilton.

To cap it all off, we will be performing this incredible line up in a very special venue - more than worthy of the scale of the music - Hamilton’s very own Clarence Street Theatre. All in all, this will be a spectacular celebration of music that you will not want to miss!

Come and join us as we mark our Diamond Anniversary in style!
