2021 CONCERT SEASON
This year the Napier Civic Choir is presenting a programme which aims to soothe, thrill, please, entertain and give food for thought, to audiences that in many different ways have experienced a distressful year.
Our central concert, Brahms Requiem, is a concert dedicated to all those people in the world who have been left behind and need inspiration to find hope and joy in life. A "requiem for the living”, it makes it a glorious piece to experience in live performance.
We have some thrilling Mozart for you too with excerpts from his opera Don Giovanni and his famous Requiem. Also we are looking forward to performing Messiah again next Christmas.
Our association with the Hawke’s Bay Orchestra will provide a couple of exciting concerts which include the fabulous Dvořák Cello Concerto performed by NZSO Principal Cellist Andrew Joyce.
We are privileged to share this year of live music with you. Our 2021 programme is not to be missed!
See you at the next concert,
José Aparicio, MUSIC DIRECTOR

The "German Requiem" is full of consolation for the mourner and of assurances of joy hereafter. It comprises seven movements. Many people have noted that unlike traditional requiems which offer prayers for the souls of the dead, Brahms' German Requiem is more concerned with offering comfort to the living.
Musically, the Requiem was a major milestone in Brahms' career.
It is quite simply a wonderful piece of music that challenges traditions and is simply not to be missed!
Napier Civic Choir are also presenting an Orchestral Concert. This performance features Tchaikovsky: Symphony No 6 - 'Pathetique' and Dvorák: Cello Concerto featuring NZSO Principal Cellist Andrew Joyce.
