Supertonic are back where they love to be - pushing the boundaries of choral music in our contemporary world.

After a year of sold-out performances in 2018, their first standalone concert series of 2019 - Leaving the Table: A story of relationship, told through song - will blur the lines between choir, theatre, and abstract expression.

This concert will explore this emotional journey with a repertoire of music from the indie-pop genre, reimagined in glorious harmony to tell a story that can be painful, heart-wrenching, but ultimately uplifting. Musical Director Isaac Stone says “the music of indie artists is unique with its raw, unfiltered emotion, its creative use of tone colours not heard in mainstream pop or classical music, and its close personal connection between composer, performer and listener".

The programme includes music from Imogen Heap, Bon Iver, Damien Rice, Florence Welch, Depeche Mode and The Beach Boys, among others. Dramatic performances from Wellington actors Cassandra Tse and James Cain will steer the story, with scenes between the songs to characterise the choir’s poignant lyrics. Together, this becomes a uncharted exploration of what can be achieved when this style of music is channeled through the live vocals of a high quality choir.

Supertonic is a Wellington-based choir that seeks to take choral music to different places and new heights. Supertonic is well known for its innovative and no-compromise concerts, from those exploring ways to amplify voices that are seldom heard, to its all-out rock extravaganzas that turn the concept of a choral concert on its head. Supertonic has consistently gone from strength to strength, with all its 2018 concerts sold out.
