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

Don Giovanni Excerpts
Surrounded by mystery, Mozart’s Requiem and Don Giovanni have been linked by their dramatic power.
Joined by soloists: Anna Pierard, Wade Kernot, Caitlin Roberts, Simon Hernyak, LJ Crichton, Tomairangi Henare and Sam McKeever.
The pastoral nature of Mahler’s The Youth's Magic Horn couples perfectly with Beethoven’s word painting masterwork. The programme opens with Stravinsky’s invigorating Pulcinella Suite from his Ballet.
