Don’t Forget Your Roots.
The Vocal Collective presents the Great Kiwi Songbook.
A powerhouse of 90 voices, The Vocal Collective is a Christchurch contemporary choir which sings pop and rock music. For the Top of the South tour, TVC presents a programme devoted to classic numbers which have helped define the sound of Aotearoa New Zealand popular music. From Blue Smoke (1949), through Nature (1969) to Kia Mau Ki Tō Ūkaipō (2019) you are sure to enjoy this showcase of fresh and engaging new arrangements.
Lead by Artistic Director, Richard Marrett, the shows will be a unique celebration of what it means to be a Kiwi. Expect to be reunited with The Feelers, the Finns, Fourmyula, Footrot Flats, Fat Freddy’s Drop, For Today and Forever Tuesday Morning. Expect to fall in love with the Great Kiwi songbook all over again.
Performing in Nelson and Blenheim, with a pop-up appearance in Kaikoura, be sure not to miss this vibrant, energetic, and uplifting performance.
