Salut Printemps!

Sunday 22nd October 2017

New Zealand’s premier professional choir, Voices New Zealand, welcomes spring with SALUT PRINTEMPS.

What better way to celebrate our love affair with the sun, budding flowers, fresh green growth, the explosion of colours and life in general, than with a programme using the ‘official’ language of love – French?

The music skips from the better-known pieces of Debussy and Poulenc to romantic and rare chansons (French songs), that conductor Dr Karen Grylls believes had not been performed in New Zealand before the sold-out premiere in Auckland last year. There’s also a quirky four-song cycle about a dromedary, a crayfish, a carp and a cat that will make you giggle.

A blissful concert full of sunshine – not to be missed!

Dr Karen Grylls - Conductor
Rachel Fuller - Pianist
Catrin Johnsson - Narrator

Duration: 90 minutes, includes interval
