Am­brosia Singers choir calls for more mem­bers

Central Leader - - NEWS -

The Am­brosian Singers Auck­land choir has places for so­pra­nos, tenors and basses for 2013.

The choir was the first to give a mod­ern-day per­for­mance of the old­est known in­dige­nous Welsh chant, iden­ti­fied in re­search by mu­si­cal di­rec­tor Gil­lian Lan­der. The 14th cen­tury chant con­cerns St David and has since been used by BBC Tele­vi­sion in its se­ries The Story of Wales, screened in 2012.

Am­brosia gives its singers the op­por­tu­nity to sing rare mu­sic as well as a range of styles old and new. Singers come from all parts of Auck­land. The choir is based in Birken­head and its re­hearsals are held on Thurs­day evenings.
