Cantando is excited to be hosting Bel Suono choir as guest performers in its first concert for 2019. When Cantando was formed 31 years ago, one of the founding principles was to encourage young singers and provide a performance platform for them.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Cantando to partner with Bel Suono, the outstanding choir from Waikato Diocesan School, and their director, Maria Colvin,” says Cantando’s Musical Director, Rupert D’Cruze.

Bel Suono is an auditioned choir which has achieved success nationally at the Big Sing festival for school choirs. They won the Excel Cup for top choir in the Waikato/Bay of Plenty region in 2016, 2017 and 2018 and were selected as a reserve choir for the Big Sing National Finale in 2017 and 2018, which means they were in the top 30 of approximately 270 choirs in New Zealand.

“Big City Swing builds on the success of Cantando’s first concert last year and focuses on music that our singers like to perform,” says Rupert. “It presents a mix of popular arrangements of lighter numbers as well as some more ‘serious’ pieces. It is with real pleasure that we again have the opportunity to perform local composer Janet Jenning’s evocative piece Matariki. We also feature David Hamilton’s imaginative settings of five poems by NZ writers in A New Zealand Aviary.”

This concert provides our audience with the chance to swing along to some of the great jazz hits such as All Aboard, Come Rain or Come Shine and the title piece Big City Swing, and to hear the region’s top secondary school choir. Tickets are limited – be quick to secure yours!

Ticket Prices (General admission): Adults $30, Senior and Unwaged $25, Student with ID $20, Family (2 Adults and 2 Children) $70 (additional children $10, under fives free). Group Bookings (10 seats) $200
