Supertonic, the 50-strong choir of Wellington young professionals, is back with its final concert of 2015. For ‘Christmas at the Gallery’, they will be joined by the Tawa College Blue Notes for a special evening of choral music dedicated to raising funds for the Friends of the Gallery charity. 

After a spectacularly successful concert honouring the legends of 70’s rock, Supertonic returns to its more traditional side with a selection of short and sweet a cappella numbers that Music Director Isaac Stone chose specifically to make the most of the New Zealand Portrait Gallery’s stunning and soaring acoustic. Included in the mix is Mendelssohn’s masterpiece anthems for double choir, the timeless standards of Rheinberger and Stanford, and the New Zealand Māori hymn ‘Mō Maria’; along with some eclectic and energetic gems. 

Both choirs have achieved considerable success in 2015, with Supertonic being hailed by critics as Wellington’s ‘new choral phenomenon’ after its sell-out concert of songs written by the imprisoned and oppressed, and Blue Notes being selected for the Big Sing National Finale for the second year running. Blue Notes also had the honour of singing for and meeting Prince Charles during his recent Royal visit. 

For Stone, this concert represents “the very best aspects of group singing: education, enjoyment, excellence and a good cause”. The concert will conclude with over 90 singers combining for two memorable and moving works, before inviting the audience to join in with joyous singing of our favourite carols. 

This one-night-only show will be on Wednesday 9 December at the New Zealand Portrait Gallery. Tickets are $15 Waged / $10 Unwaged and are available on the door.
