Magpie, Song & Dance concert on Saturday 26 May 2012, 7:30 pm at Knox Church.

We invite you to enjoy this performance!

The City of Dunedin Choir and the Dunedin Youth Orchestra, conducted by David Burchell, are pleased to present a concert of romantic music ranging from somewhat melancholy to excitingly vibrant moods and soaring melodies.

The programme will include Rossini's Thieving Magpie, Brahms' Song of Destiny, Borodin's Polovetsian Dances (from Prince Igor), Sibelius' Karelia Suite, and Mozart's Concerto in A for Clarinet with young soloist Nicole Batchelar, who is now in her third year of a B.Mus. focusing on conducting and composition.

Her performance instrument is the clarinet, which she has been playing for over ten years. In 2011 Nicole started teaching clarinet at Saturday Morning Music Classes, where she also assists with conducting the Junior Symphonia, with Aart Brusse. In the same year she had an opportunity to conduct her own composition, The Quake, with the Dunedin Youth Orchestra.
