Malvina & Malcolm at the Movies

Malvina & Malcolm at the Movies

“[Malvina] Major was responsible for a moment of pure magic when she came on for an encore… the voice was a creamy delight” [New Zealand Herald] "Malcolm McNeill is a warm and engaging singer with international appeal. He has sophistication and an intimate way with lyrics that is hard to surpass." [New York Observer]

The third concert in the Auckland Philharmonia’s 2003 Telecom Pops series features Dame Malvina Major and Malcolm O’Neill in a show of music from the big screen; from Hollywood to Broadway – a glittering array of some of the best known songs from the world of light music.

New Zealand’s much loved diva, Dame Malvina Major, needs little introduction. Dame Malvina has chosen to live in New Zealand while maintaining an active international singing career, through which she has developed an extensive operatic, concert, oratorio and recital repertoire. In New Zealand she regularly sings with the major opera companies, orchestras and choirs as well as frequently performing as a guest artist in outdoor concerts.

Malcolm McNeill has long been considered New Zealand's finest jazz singer. For over 30 years his unique artistry and intelligent approach has earned him the enthusiastic and loyal following of aficionados both in his own country and around the world.

Together, with the Auckland Philharmonia and conductor Brian Law, a glorious night of song is promised. “Malvina and Malcolm at the Movies” Saturday 16 August – 8pm, Aotea Centre Adult tickets from $30. Phone the Ticketek Orchestra Hotline on 307 5139.

Telecom Pops is sponsored by Telecom New Zealand with support from MORE FM.
