NZ Male Choir In Concert with Havelock North High School

Columba Way, Havelock North

The joy of singing in a choral setting is what brings the New Zealand Male Choir and the choirs of Havelock North High School together for an evening of music. All choirs will perform separately so you get to hear the widest variety of sound. They will present music from modern shows to opera, from African spirituals to Lerner & Loewe, from waiata to Beethoven This is a wonderful opportunity to hear choral singing at its best.

The New Zealand Male Choir is an auditioned choir with over fifty members from Southland to North Auckland. Conducted by Hawkes Bay’s Joe Christensen, the Choir sing a range of music including classical, folk, waiata, gospel, operatic, popular, jazz, and contemporary. The Choir has entertained audiences both nationally and internationally for the past 23 years including several tours throughout Europe, Australia, and Canada. The Choir practises with North Island and South Island groups meeting monthly, and collectively meet for tours or concerts two or three times a year.

In June, the Choir will be undertaking an eight concert tour of Singapore, Germany, Austria and Italy, plus taking part in a five day music festival at Val Pusteria in the Italian Dolomites with six indoor and outdoor performances.

Musical Director Joe Christensen comments “I’ve now been with the Choir coming up eight years and I have really enjoyed the challenge of working with the men and melding the four voice parts to produce a quality sound. They have been working hard, not only for this concert, but also the upcoming European Tour. By contrast, I am also the conductor of the Havelock North High School choirs and relish the different dynamics bringing the older and younger people together. I’m looking forward to the concert myself!’.

New Zealand Male Choir and Havelock North High School give the promise of an enjoyable and memorable evening.
