Puoro Whakaari AOTEAROA NEW ZEALAND
New Zealand’s premiere song ensemble, accompanied by Dunedin’s own Tom McGrath, reform for the first time since the pandemic hit. This programme, The Light in the Dark, is a nod to the bleak times musicians have experienced worldwide during the last two years, and an acknowledgement of our emerging from a state of idleness and uncertainty. Centred around a theme of night-time, and transitioning through celebration, wonderment and grief, this programme - featuring Mahler, Brahms, Poulenc, Quilter and Lauridsen - will allow you a brief moment of introspection and reflection.
Renowned soprano Anna Leese returns to curate this much-loved music series. This year with New Zealand artists and New Zealand compositions and arrangements in every programme, St Paul’s at One celebrates our own unique flavour of classical music in Aotearoa. Featuring a wide range of instrumentalists and vocalists, we are lucky to host many of Aotearoa’s most outstanding and exciting musicians in their fields. We represent opera, classical guitar, a chamber orchestra, a vocal ensemble, and Tararua, an exciting ensemble of Western and traditional Māori instrumentalists, who craft waiata, karakia, and pūrākau to tell uniquely Southern stories.
