Annual St Cecilia-tide Concert Fundraising Concert

Annual St Cecilia-tide Concert Fundraising Concert for the Cathedral Choral Foundation Monday 22 November 2004, 7.30pm

Jennifer Little (soprano) Megan Hurnard (mezzo soprano) Alastair Carey (tenor) Roger Wilson (bass) Collegium Esterhazy Salzburgiensis Richard Apperley (chamber organ) The Choir of Wellington Cathedral, conducted by Michael Fulcher.

Door sales: $15, $10 (concessions), $5 (children/students). Tickets are also available from Ticketek.

The Cathedral is well known for the quality of its choirs, but, like every arts organisation, the music programme functions in a precarious financial situation. For this reason, a capital endowment fund ‘The Choral Foundation’ has been established to underwrite and support our ever-expanding music programme. Central to this programme is our commitment to ‘Singing for Life’ and our investment in young people through our Children’s Choir and world-class Treble Chorister programme.

On St Cecilia’s day (the Patron Saint of Music) the cathedral is presenting a programme of one of the most popular works by the Viennese Classical composer Josef Haydn. The Nelson Mass is regularly at the top of the best-sellers list of classical CDs. The mass features some of Wellington’s top soloists, and will be accompanied by the Collegium Esterhazy Salzburgiensis, an orchestra formed especially for this concert. The concert will also include Mozart’s Exsultate, jubilate featuring soprano soloist Lisette Wesseling.
