Odes to Joy
NZSO & Voices NZ Chamber Choir

23 Sept– Michael Fowler Centre, Wellington
24 Sept– Auckland Town Hall
27 Sept– CSO Arena, Christchurch
28 Sept– Dunedin Town Hall

Chris performed as a member of Voices NZ Chamber Choir with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and choirs from each of the main centres to bring two great works to life.

One was Beethoven’s immortal 9th Symphony, his “Ode to Joy”, and the other was a world premiere work by NZ composer Gareth Farr, “Kaitiaki”.

Chris was one of 20 Voices NZ Chamber Choir members who travelled with the NZSO and formed the core of the choir which was supplemented with choristers from each of the local choral societies.

This tour was part of the REAL NZ Arts Festival, as part of the Rugby World Cup 2011 festivities.
