The Jubilate Singers is a SATB chamber choir of approximately 30 voices.

Since the choir's inception in 1977, it has built an enviable reputation for presenting imaginative and innovative programmes and is equally at home performing A Capella sacred and secular works, jazz arrangements and larger works with orchestral accompaniment.

Sounds of Aotearoa celebrates the wonderful talent of our home-grown composers by performing a concert of New Zealand works. Come and hear the evocative sounds of New Zealand and enjoy our history through song.

We feature the playful Plumsong by the Jubilate Singers’ patron, Philip Norman, and the world premier of a new choral work by Christchurch composer Patrick Shepherd, setting three poems from Arawata Bill by Denis Glover.

From the haunting sounds of Helen Fisher’s Pounamu, to the sublime Lord When the Sense of Thy Sweet Grace by former Jubilate Patron Professor John Ritchie, you will be treated to a programme of music to be proud of.

The concert includes items by guest choir, Bel Canto, (Burnside High School), and Isabella Gregory, (flute), and a pre-concert talk by composer Patrick Shepherd.

The full programme is:
Part One:
- Helen Fisher - Pounamu (Flute and choir)
- Cheryl Camm - Motu Puketutu
- David Childs - Salve Regina
- Guest Choir - Bel Canto
- David Childs - Weep No More
- David Hamilton - Oh Sleep, Come Sleep, Lux Aeterna, Didn’t It Rain.

Part Two:
William Southgate - Whakarongo Mai
Douglas Mews - Two Songs of the Seas:
- Come all you tonguers (depicts shore whalers)
- Blood Red Roses (depicts sealers, sea shanty)
Patrick Shepherd - Three Songs from Arawata Bill – Denis Glover
John Ritchie - Lord When the Sense of Thy Sweet Grace
Philip Norman - Plum Songs (AK Grant text, amusing reflections on the nursery rhyme ‘Little Jack Horner’).
