The Orpheus Choir invites you to an evening of music paying tribute to mining communities worldwide and commemorating events that have irrevocably changed their lives. The focus will be on the Pike River Mine disaster that threw a community into turmoil and brought its plight into every New Zealand household overnight. A new commissioned work by legendary New Zealand singer-songwriter Dave Dobbyn will pay tribute to the miners who lost their lives in the tragedy.

Complementing the new work will be an acclaimed contemporary choral work, 17 Days, written by British composer James McCarthy and inspired by the dramatic rescue of 33 Chilean miners in 2010. The Orpheus Choir will be joined by the award-winning Wellington Brass Band and Wellington Young Voices. If Blood be the Price, inspired by the Waihi miners’ strike in 1912, composed by Ross Harris and set to a poem by New Zealand Poet Laureate Vincent O’Sullivan, will complete the programme.
