It seems hard to believe that it’s that time already, but Supertonic wish to joyfully announce their final concert of 2018, In the Key of Christmas.
This choral concert will be held at 7pm on Tuesday 4th December at Wesley Church, Wellington.
While things start to get a little frantic in the lead up to the festive season, with end-of-year parties, gift shopping and travel planning aplenty, Supertonic hope to offer their audience a moment of calm. Take a moment to soak up the sounds of Christmastime with an evening of choral melodies to inspire merry memories of years gone by.
The programme includes classic and contemporary works, including Ola Gjeilo’s modern arrangement of the dearly-treasured Christmas carol Away in a Manger, the delightful Somewhere in my Memory composed by John Williams for the classic Christmas film Home Alone, and Handel’s stirring Hallelujah Chorus. Sure to be a highlight is Pō Marie, a kiwi setting of Silent Night arranged by Terence Maskell, with lyrics in te reo Māori and in English. Pieces by Mendelssohn, Holst and Tchaikovsky will also feature. There will be a number of small ensemble and solo performances, together with the sounds of 56-voice-strong Supertonic that audiences have grown to love.
This concert will be conducted by Hazel Fenemor. A member of Supertonic choir since 2015, Hazel is an exceptionally talented musician. Previously music director of Wellington Youth Choir, Hazel is excited to return to directing for this concert.
So why not treat yourself to an evening of delightful music and festive cheer? Tickets are available at www.supertonic.org.nz.
