Supertonic is delighted to be visiting Church Road Winery as part of its 2016 tour of Hawke’s Bay. The Winery's beautiful cellar will be transformed into an intimate concert venue, providing a memorable concert experience for audience members.

Comprising of 56 Wellington singers in their 20s and 30s, the avid young choir will present Sojourn, a programme of enchanting classical works and popular songs reinvigorated through the jazz idiom.

The programme embodies the changing of the seasons, and the rejuvenation and vitality of spring. It covers an entertaining range of music from a variety of genres. Works by English composer Gustav Holst will feature, including his Six Folk Songs; quintessential traditional pieces examining themes of love, loss and adventure. In contrast, the choir will perform popular classics such as Scarborough Fair and My Favourite Things, all refreshed by a jazz twist. This complementary pairing highlights the communicative power of music, capturing and conveying emotion across the decades.

Supertonic's musical director Isaac Stone has led the choir since its inception in 2014. A teacher of classroom music and leader of the choral programme at Tawa College in Wellington, he places a premium on making choral music enjoyable and accessible to singers and audiences alike.

Over the last three years, Supertonic has performed both traditional classical music such as Vaughan Williams' Mass in G and Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb, as well as presenting more boundary-pushing programmes such as Fighting in the Dance Hall, which paired Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours with David Bowie’s Hunky Dory in a choral rock concert extravaganza.

The choir’s combination of technical skill and passion for the music they perform has Supertonic noted by critics as a new phenomenon in the Wellington choral scene.

Tickets can be purchased from Eventfinda, Napier, Hastings & Havelock North i-SITE Centres, CHB Visitor Information Centre, and the CHB Municipal Theatre.
