Auck­land Choral con­cert features mu­sic fit for a king

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Auck­land Choral will per­form mu­sic fit for roy­alty when it takes to the stage later this month.

The For a King con­cert is in­spired by the coro­na­tions of kings and queens and will fea- ture some of Han­del’s finest works.

It in­cludes his Corona­tion An­thems, Mu­sic for the Royal Fire­works, Ar­rival of the Queen of Sheba and Or­gan Con­certo No 5 with soloist James Tib­bles, an early mu­sic spe­cial­ist at the Univer­sity of Auck­land.

The pro­gramme features a mix of choral and in­stru­men­tal mu­sic, with Pipers Sin­fo­nia led by Mi­randa Hut- ton, a baroque spe­cial­ist.

So­prano Lilia Carpinelli will sing the mourn­ful aria Piangero´ la sorte from Gi­ulio Ce­sare.

The per­for­mance will be con­ducted by mu­sic di­rec­tor Pro­fes­sor Uwe Grodd.

The con­cert is at Holy Trin­ity Cathe­dral on April 20 at 7.30pm.
