Experience the magic of male voices, the joy of mixed choirs to the sounds of big jazz band
The New Zealand Male Choir is performing with the Mountainview High School Jazz Band and the Waimate Community Choir in the Mountainview High School auditorium on Thursday 30th September 2021 at 7.30pm.
The joy of singing in a choral setting is what brings the New Zealand Male Choir and the Waimate Community together, plus an especially arranged combined song accompanied the Mountainview High School Jazz Band for an evening of music. The three groups 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. 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 sixth 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.
The two choirs and the band are looking forward to entertaining Timaru and surrounding districts and give the promise of an enjoyable and memorable evening of music and song. Tickets are available on the Eventfinda website or at the door. Adults $20. Secondary & Primary Students free. Eft-Pos available.
