The final concert in the 2017 Sunday concert matinee series on Sunday November 12 at 2:30pm will feature Manawatu performers who are connected to Musica Viva, a music club for people who enjoy live performances of music and whose preference is for music of enduring quality.

The origins of the Society date back to the foundation of the Palmerston North Ladies Music Club in the 1920s. In 1982 this amalgamated with the Dorian Society and the resultant organisation was named Musica Viva. Each month, from March to December the Society presents a concert drawn from its members (with occasional guests) in the Evelyn Rawlins Room at Square Edge, The Square, Palmerston North.

The society includes some of the best of local performers of concert music and this variety concert will feature a range of them in a wide spectrum of concert music.

The earliest music to be heard will be an arrangement of a sixteenth century Ave Maria for voice and Maori instruments. For lovers of Baroque music there is a movement of a concerto for descant recorder and strings, and Baroque specialist Roy Tankersley will play a piece on the harpsichord.

Ingrid Vlieg, who has performed on a couple of occasions in the Globe series will perform a piece for clarinet and piano, accompanied by Guy Donaldson.

Piano pieces range from Mozart to Rachmaninov, and some jazz inspired by Chopin played by Chris Dann. Songs by Schubert, Schumann are included in the programme, along with the well-known Panis Angelicus and Shylock’s Song from the musical Oliver.

Musica Viva also runs a Young Performers Scholarship with the support of the Palmerston North Rotary Club. Many of its winners, including Anna Leese have gone on to perform regularly on the national and international stage. One such winner was young tenor Tehezib Lathiff who last year was studying singing in England.

He is now home for a period, and this concert will feature his singing four operatic arias. Tehezib was recently a finalist in the New Zealand aria competition in Rotorua. This is a special opportunity for those who have attended his farewell concert two years ago to hear his development and enjoy his musicianship while he is in the country.

Entry to the concert is by donation, recommended to be from $5.
