The Central Otago Regional Choir and Central Otago Regional Orchestra presents The Sprig of Thyme performing two John Rutter pieces.

The Gloria for choir brass, percussion and organ is a fanfare-like work, magnificently written for SATB choir, brass, orchestra and organ with beautiful melodies and complex harmonies. This stirring work is one of Rutter's most impressive and loveable pieces.

The Sprig of Thyme features the choir only with piano accompaniment. The haunting folk melodies come to life in these moving, and well known folk songs from the United Kingdom.

The Central Otago Regional Choir is delighted to feature one of this country's finest organists, Kemp English as guest artist.

The concert series runs over three days in Wanaka, Queenstown, and Alexandra from Friday 30 November to Sunday 2 December.

Wanaka: Lake Wanaka Centre, Friday 30 November, 7.30pm
