Hallelujah! Dunedin

Hallelujah! Dunedinites, you have another great opportunity to hear Handel's glorious oratorio, Messiah on Tuesday 13 December, 7:30 pm, in the Regent Theatre.

Extra, extra! Dunedin's beloved Anna Leese will sing the soprano solo role. Get your tickets now from TicketDirect online or at the Regent.

Here is the Hallelujah! chorus from Handel's sacred oratorio Messiah (HWV 56) performed by City of Dunedin Choir and Southern Sinfonia, conducted by David Burchell, on 11 December 2007 in the Dunedin Town Hall.

Silent monks

You might enjoy this! We are rehearsing Messiah now, but certainly not silently. Our performance on Tuesday 13 December will be a few notches above this one, so get your tickets for Messiah without delay!

Also check out the nuns' version elsewhere on our blog.

Merry Christmas!

A few days ago, a whole stack of my friends were involved in a Hallelujah Chorus flash mob in Melbourne.

I thought people might enjoy the Youtube of the event. For me, it's a bit like watching a "who's who" among my Melbourne friends :-) The flashmob was conducted by old time mate Trevor Jones, who is awesome.

So - next year in the Meridien for City Choir, maybe?

Have a lovely Christmas, everyone, and see you in 2011!

On 13 November 2010 unsuspecting shoppers got a big surprise while enjoying their lunch. There are over 100 participants in this awesome Christmas Flash Mob.

Recording for Praise Be

In 2007 the TVNZ crew visited Knox Church, Dunedin to record choral music for broadcast on the programme 'Praise Be'. The following choirs participated in this recording event: City of Dunedin Choir, Knox Church Choir, St Paul's Cathedral Choir and Columba College Choir.

Here are two movements from Handel's Messiah, performed by City of Dunedin Choir conducted by David Burchell, with Karen Knudson at the organ.
