Programme: Songs, Duos and Ensembles by Schubert, Faure, Ravel, Somervell, Quilter and Vaughan Williams

Led by internationally acclaimed soprano Anna Leese-Guidi, the Takiri Ensemble is an exciting vocal group featuring amazingly talented New Zealand musicians: four opera singers and a pianist. Joining soprano Anna Leese-Guidi will be experienced mezzo-soprano Maaike Beekman who has performed widely in Europe and New Zealand. Tenor Cameron Barclay spends six months of each year touring the world as one of the Ten Tenors and the bass is Robert Tucker who appears regularly with New Zealand Opera.

Kirsten Robertson (nee Simpson) is one of New Zealand's most experienced vocal accompanists who has worked with such greats as Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and Dame Malvina Major.

The programme includes solos, duos and ensembles by a wide range of composers. The first half of the concert will be devoted to the lieder of Schubert, with eight songs from the Schwanengesang Cycle, plus some duets and an ensemble. In the second part of the concert there will be music by Faure, Ravel and English songs by Somervell, Quilter and Vaughan Williams.

Door sales will be available, or tickets can be bought at Waikanae New World, at Moby Dickens Books in Paraparaumu Beach, or at Lush Design Gallery in Raumati.
