A wel­come re­turn

Kapi-Mana News - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

Tawa’s dis­tin­guished so­prano Ai­vale Cole will join tenor Ben Mak­isi and the Vec­tor Welling­ton Or­ches­tra when it re­turns to the Govern­ment House grounds for its Do­min­ion Post Sum­mer Con­cert next month.

The tra­di­tional fi­nale of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Over­ture, with its fa­mous flour­ish of can­nons, will top off a con­cert of clas­si­cal favourites and great opera arias.

‘‘It’s been a re­ally pop­u­lar con­cert in the past.

‘‘We know peo­ple have missed it while the Govern­ment House ren­o­va­tions have been go­ing on,’’ says VWO mu­sic di­rec­tor Marc Tad­dei.

‘‘I’m pleased to say we’ll be the first pub­lic event on the grounds once Govern­ment House re­opens.’’

The out­door con­cert will in­clude a pic­nic lunch by Wish­bone, and wine.

The con­cert is on Satur­day, March 5 (or March 6 if post­poned due to rain), in the Govern­ment House gar­den, 2pm (gates open at mid­day).

Tick­ets are $69 (adult), $29 (child) and in­cludes the pic­nic lunch. Avail­able through Tick­etek.

On stage: Ai­vale Cole will per­form with the Vec­tor Welling­ton Or­ches­tra at next month’s sum­mer con­cert in the Govern­ment House gar­den.
