Calling Dunedin singers for Verdi rehearsals


Verdi Requiem with the NZSO

Saturday 22 June 7:30 pm – Town Hall, Auckland
Wednesday 26 June 7:00 pm – CBS Arena, Christchurch
Thursday 27 June 6:30 pm – Dunedin Town Hall
Saturday 29 June 7:30 pm – Michael Fowler Centre, Wellington

The Choir is thrilled to have been invited by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra to perform one of the greatest works in the choral repertoire, Verdi’s Messa da Requiem. Not only are we performing this huge, powerful and moving work with the NZSO in Dunedin, but the Choir will also travel with the orchestra to the other main centres, and join with Auckland Choral Society, The Orpheus Choir of Wellington and Christchurch City Choir in their respective performances.

The Choir performed the Verdi Requiem during our Centenary in 1963, so this opportunity is very fitting for City Choir Dunedin's 150th anniversary celebration.

We invite singers from Dunedin to join City Choir, especially for the performance in Dunedin. Rehearsals are starting on Tuesday 2 April and anyone is welcome to audition for the Verdi choir. Rehearsals are on Tuesdays from 7:30 to 9:30 pm. Please note that a bond of $25 will be required for the music score. We would be pleased to welcome you at the Mornington Presbyterian Community Centre, 16 Maryhill Terrace, Mornington, Dunedin.
