Upcoming Concerts

Camerata Chamber Choir's Christmas concert for 2016:

GOOD KING WENCESLAS

Saturday 3 December, 7.30pm
St George's Presbyterian Church, 2 The Terrace, Takapuna

With guests 
Sheryl Clarke (piano),
Jonathan Eyers (bass)
and Dilys Fong (mezzo-soprano)

In 2014 Bob Chilcott was asked to compose a twenty minute choral work to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the well-known British chain store 'John Lewis'. The result is an engaging work for choir and piano, titled simply Wenceslas, evoking the original story with its message of winter cold, poverty and charity.

The acclaimed Sheryl Clarke will delight us on the piano. Wenceslas will be sung by Hamilton bass, Jonathan Eyers, and The Page by young Auckland singer, Dilys Fong. Jonathan is currently studying towards an Honours degree at Waikato University with Dame Malvina Major. Dilys is an ex-Westlake Girls High School student, a singer from Key Cygnetures who has gone on to achieve BMus/ BSc majoring in Performance Voice and Physics.

We will also sing some other carols for you, plus three chorales from J.S. Bach's Christmas Oratorio, interspersed with arias sung by Dilys and Jonathan.
