Last con­cert for Cham­ber Choir

Kapiti News - - Book Review -

Ka¯ piti Cham­ber Choir’s fi­nal con­cert takes place in St Paul’s Angli­can Church, Ka¯ piti Rd, Para­pa­raumu, on Satur­day from 4pm. En­try is free.

The choir was formed in 1992 by the late pro­fes­sor Peter God­frey as a group of 25 to 30 ex­pe­ri­enced singers able to read mu­sic and with well-pro­duced voices who would not be daunted by a de­mand­ing reper­toire.

God­frey was suc­ceeded by Guy Jansen, Stuart Dou­glas and the cur­rent di­rec­tor Eric Si­doti.

The choir has ex­plored the great works of the clas­si­cal Euro­pean and Amer­i­can tra­di­tions as well as folk songs and many New Zealand com­posers.

Now, re­luc­tantly, the choir has de­cided to dis­band.
