Southern Stars review extract

On 21 March 2009, in the Dunedin Town Hall, City of Dunedin Choir participated in the Southern Sinfonia's presentation of the Dunedin Heritage Festival concert entitled Southern Stars, Celebrating the Life, Times and Works of Frances Hodgkins. The Choir performed Serenade to Music by Ralph Vaughan Williams, and an extract from Anthony Richie's From the Southern Marches.

"The City of Dunedin Choir joined for Serenade to Music by Vaughan Williams. Excellent balance and gloriously serene harmony passages, including solo violin (Sydney Manowitz), contrasted with well-achieved climaxes."

(Extract from the review by Elizabeth Bouman in the Otago Daily Times of 23 March 2009.)
