Folk song concert from Oriana
Tauranga’s Oriana Singers present The Sprig of Thyme and other folk songs of the British Isles later in June.
Oriana Singers publicity officer Denise Green says the community choir has two sets of concerts during the year.
“There’s always variety on our concerts. We try to make them along the lines of popular easy listening music.”
Included in the winter concerts ( held in tumoetai and Mount Maunganui) is John Rutter’s The Sprig of Thyme and other folk songs such as The Keel Row, Afton Water and The Cuckoo.
They also sing well- known folk songs such as Danny Boy and Loch Lomond.
The singers are under the direction of Katrina Daniela, accompanied by Leon Gray.
