Nelson Civic Choir and Nelson City Brass present their first joint concert to bring you A Night At The Opera with a varied programme of popular opera choruses ranging from the tragic to the joyous.
The choir and band, with soprano Rebecca Ryan, tenor Ewen Griffiths and instrumentalists, will perform under the baton of Nigel E. Weeks on Saturday August 24th at 7.30 pm in the Nelson School of Music Auditorium at NCMA.
The concert is based on different combinations of choir, soloists, and instrumentalists, performing the beautiful Easter Hymn, the Chorus of Wedding Guests, The Drinking Song, the Anvil Chorus, the Triumphal Scene from Verdi's Aida, the Chorus of Scottish Refugees, from Macbeth, and the Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves. The concert also features arias performed by the soprano and tenor soloists, and items performed by Nelson City Brass.
