In a programme full of variety, the Kowhai Singers’ concert “In Every Corner Sing” celebrates the joys of music making.

Choral settings of the words “Let All the World In Every Corner Sing” begin and end the programme – the first being composed by Chapman and the last by Vaughan Williams.

The concert is far from being merely a selection of choral standards, however. The importance of singing is well illustrated by the New Zealand, Anthony Ritchie, in his “Song of Hope” which tells of a human chain gang helping survivors of the Wahine disaster from the waters of Wellington Harbour. Contrastingly, a little gem by Jeffers “I Have Had Singing” speaks of how important vocal music was in the humdrum life of a very poor English farm labourer. Lovely French pieces - such as Faure’s Cantique de Jean Racine and Le Baylere from Songs of the Auvergne, are also included.

Peter Cammell will direct both the full choir and the Chamber Group - and Susan Hayday and Beverley Hicks will sing a duet setting of the famous Schubert song “An Die Musik” written in the celebration of the art of music making.

This all-comers district choir of approximately 50 members is always happy to welcome new members. Should you be interested in joining, or merely wish to find out more, please feel free to contact Maggie on 425 6365 or Jocelyn on 425 5495.
