Join Hamilton City Brass & Cantando Choir for an afternoon of beautiful music inspired by the spirit of ANZAC Day.

You'll be treated to brackets from both the band and the choir then the choir and band will come together to perform 'Ka Waiata Ki A Maria' as well as the perennial ANZAC favourite 'Abide with Me'. Favourites from Sir Karl Jenkin’s 'The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace' – 'Agnus Dei' and 'Benedictus' will feature along with the hymn from Finlandia 'Be Still My Soul'.

The choir has selected a beautiful programme including 'May The Road Rise To Meet You' by David Hamilton; Howard Goodall’s 'Love Divine 'and 'Hymn For Anzac Day' by Colin Gibson & Shirley Erena Murray. 'There Is A Season' by Greg Gilpin draws on the emotive biblical text from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8,11 which helps us to understand that "there is a time . . . a season . . . for every purpose under heaven". Cantando Choir is proud to be presenting a specially commissioned New Zealand work in 'Te Ngākau, Ē'. Promising young local pianist and composer, Fergus Byett has created a beautiful setting of a traditional lament and the choir has very much enjoyed preparing it for this world premiere performance.

Hamilton City Brass under the musical direction of Mason Elliot will perform several pieces written especially for ANZAC by New Zealand brass band composer Dwayne Bloomfield, 'Behold the Narrows from the Hills' and 'Passchendaele. Our Principal Cornet Todd Smith will delight with 'The Watermill' and Simon Winship will present 'A Letter Home' on Tenor Horn. Wagner’s 'Procession to the Minster' and 'Psalm 104' (Bless the Lord, O My Soul) will complete the band’s programme.

You are warmly invited to join Hamilton City Brass and Cantando Choir as we collaborate to commemorate ANZAC 2023 with our moving concert dedicated to the camaraderie and memory of this nation-defining legacy.

Tickets will be in popular demand, so be sure to secure yours early!
