DARKNESS INTO LIGHT

DARKNESS INTO LIGHT

Light is rather important to our existence. And sound and light are of course a marriage made in … whatever your view is of heaven. So, we bring these two elemental phenomena together in the dramatic surroundings of St Matthew’s and present our own son et lumière performance – combining richly evocative, often Easter-inspired, choral music with a light show against the backdrop of the church’s neo-Gothic pillars. Luminaries such as Tallis, Gesualdo, Bach, Brahms, Elgar, Poulenc, Lauridsen, Hamilton and Ešenvalds will help us portray the power and mystery of light. A feast for the ears and the eyes!

Saturday 7 April, 7.30pm

THE POWER OF THREE

THE POWER OF THREE

Viva Voce turns 33 this year. Not normally a reason for massive celebration, but three is a number that has fascinated mathematicians, scientists, philosophers, theologians and superstitious people over many centuries. And now us! In a traditional VV themed programme, presented in our wonted theatrical and light-hearted style, we’ll sing you a colourful variety of madrigals, part-songs, folk songs and lighter numbers, all grouped around or based on the aforementioned number. You’ll need to book early: ‘Three’ is a crowd!

Sunday 24 June, 3.30pm
Concert Chamber
Auckland Town Hall

MY KIWI TEA

MY KIWI TEA

In all the many ‘dinner entertainments’ we’ve mounted in the past three decades, never once have we staged one with our own Godzone as the backdrop. In October we’ll put that to rights by serving you a magnificent Kiwi afternoon tea with all the trimmings … accompanied by the liquid tones of Viva Voce as we bring you the music of Aotearoa/NZ: national songs, waiata and several of our iconic pop songs, in sparkling choral arrangements. Yum. Ladies, no need to bring a plate!

Saturday 13 October, 2.00pm & 5.30pm
Sunday 14 October, 5.30pm
St Mark's Church Hall
Remuera Road

AN ARCTIC CHRISTMAS

with The Idea of North

AN ARCTIC CHRISTMAS <h3>with The Idea of North</h3>

Yes, Christmas in NZ is warm, and it wasn’t/isn’t even particularly cold in Bethlehem. But there’s no escaping the fact that most of the Christmas music we know and love comes from the wintry north. This year we embrace that tradition and sing you a collection of those favourite carols and seasonal songs that are covered in ice and snow and wrapped in tinsel, holly and mistletoe. What’s more, after our sell-out ‘VV Jazz’ collaboration in 2016, hugely entertaining Aussie ensemble The Idea of North returns to share the festivities with us, this time in the main Town Hall. Chillingly unmissable!

Friday 14 December, 7.30pm
