A reunited A-Choired Taste will perform both classical choral pieces and popular songs at a concert in Warkworth on Auckland Anniversary weekend.
The first half of the concert will feature choral pieces written by Mozart, Handel, Vivaldi and Schubert.
The second half will have songs from South Pacific, My Fair Lady and Oklahoma, plus animal songs with audience participation.
A-Choired Taste originated about 15 years ago with the formation of a small choir to take part in a concert and church service at St John’s Co-Operating Church at Medlands, on Great Barrier Island.
The concert became an annual event for 10 consecutive years.
Brian Millar, currently the director of music at St Mark’s Anglican Church in Remuera, was the conductor for most of those years.
One of the original singers, who has now moved to Sandspit, proposed a reunion for the Warkworth concert with the same format used at Medlands. Brian will again conduct.
The choir will be accompanied by Peter Watts, Auckland Choral’s music director for 20 years.
Peter continues to be involved with vocal and piano music, particularly at All Saints Anglican Church in Howick.
A-Choired Taste will perform at Christ Church, Church Hill, Warkworth on Saturday, January 27, at 7.30pm. Tickets at the door. Adults $20, seniors $15, children free.
