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.

Bring cash to purchase raffle tickets and be in to win a basket of delicious goodies for Christmas. All raffle proceeds will go the Auckland City Mission.

There will also be a silent auction of Jenny Firth's 'Wenceslas' painting, featured on our concert poster. (Keep an eye out for the painting in the foyer when you arrive.)

For more details, see the attached poster or our website.
