It’s Hamilton Civic Choir on tour.

Let’s start with a look back before we go forward. Under the baton of Musical Director, Timothy Carpenter Hamilton Civic Choir has consistently presented concerts of very high calibre. The reviews by critics, both local and Auckland based, have been glowing and the choir has started to try a few variations of its usual format.

MD Timothy Carpenter says “The choir is so capable and I want to extend the repertoire, the collaboration and the availability of the choral experience to a wider audience. We’ve got a three-concert series planned - touring to Cambridge, Te Awamutu in August and here in Hamilton to help the Museum celebrate 30 years at the Grantham Street site in October.”

Choir Chairperson Sally Rosenberg explains the title of the concerts series “5, 4, 3, 2, 1”. She says “Our music sub-committee were looking for a common thread to literally string some favourite and some new pieces together. The idea of having “5” pieces from two composers, “4” pieces from another two and so on means we’ve got some great challenges for the choir to learn and love the music.

From Tippett’s Five Negro Spirituals to Eric Whitacre’s Animal Crackers through to Wairua tapu, which we are delighted to have permission to sing, means we have new music, older music, music from differing cultural heritages and music representing a wide time scale and geography of composers.
The choir is in great voice and will really enjoy performing in our neighbouring towns.

We’ll be accompanied by the always excellent Francis Cowan who is looking forward to playing the Yamaha grand piano in its new location at St John’s Church in Te Awamutu and returning to St Andrew’s Church in Cambridge with its wonderful early 20th Century architecture.

School-aged children - Free.
