All Ages

Following the Auckland Welsh Choir’s exhilarating concert last year for St David’s Day, the choir is pleased to return to Takapuna’s St Joseph’s Church for its annual celebration in tribute to St David, Patron Saint of Wales. The concert is also supporting the North Shore Hospice by donating all profits from ticket sales.

In contrast to its recent and highly successful performance of Mendelssohn’s music with the Devonport Chamber Orchestra, the Auckland Welsh Choir is delighted to return to its Celtic origins for this special event. Presented in the strongly Celtic programme will be a varied and accessible repertoire, showcasing the beloved songs of Wales.

Last year, young string players performed Celtic tunes arranged by Director of Music Diana Rhodes for chamber music ensembles, alongside the famous Beethoven arrangements of Welsh Songs. This year, the choir will explore the sounds of brass instruments as they take up similar challenges. Harp and solo singers will contribute to the diversity, and the piper may again ‘call the tune’ from his vantage point high in the choir loft.

The Auckland Welsh Choir featured a large presence during the Rugby World Cup through performances at Party Central, Manurewa World Cup festival, College Rifles and appearances on Maori TV, SKY TV, French TV and the BBC.

Tickets are available from www.iticket.co.nz or by phoning 09 361 1000. Tickets are also available at the door.
