Groundswell - press release
Supertonic presents Groundswell
Supertonic announces its next performance for 2019 – Groundswell: Songs for a Sustainable Future. Join us in the gorgeous acoustic of Pipitea Marae at 4:30pm on Sunday 17 November 2019, to commemorate the change people have caused to the Earth and to celebrate the groundswell of momentum from people eager to solve those environmental issues.
After the success of the indie-pop adventure Leaving the Table, Supertonic will present an ambitious choral concert exploring our relationship with the environment around us, and the impact humans can have – both negative and positive. From the waters of Aotearoa to the Mongolian steppe, Australian rainforest, and North African desert, the audience’s journey will span the world. Through music and accompanying kōrero, Groundswell will explore climate change, the loss of biological diversity, human damage to the environment, the loss of indigenous environmental guardianship, and the global and local challenges that make addressing these issues so complicated.
As Supertonic’s audiences have come to expect, this will be an immersive experience with top notch harmonies and a thought-provoking message.
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 gone from strength to strength with consistently sold out concerts.
Tickets available www.supertonic.org.nz from Monday 14 October. Get in quick!
