About the Kāpiti Chorale

A Banquet of French Music

A wonderful banquet of French music is being presented on 19 August by Kāpiti Chorale in St Paul's Church Paraparaumu, at 2.30pm.  The menu begins with an entrée, Gounod's Messe Breve No 7 and is followed by tantalising pieces from d'Indy, Saint-Saëns, and Fauré's masterpiece Cantique de Jean Racine.  The main course is the ever favourite Requiem in C by Gounod.

In addition, there will be delectable morsels served up by our soloists, three of whom are our very own Kāpiti Chorale Vocal Award winners from the NZ School of Music, Olivia Sheat, soprano, Alexandra Woodhouse Appleby, mezzo soprano and Joseph Haddow baritone.  Jamie Young, tenor, will also join the other soloists and choir in this upcoming concert.

An extra treat will be a violin solo played on a beautiful 18th century violin owned by choir member Bill McKeich and currently on loan to Dr Martin Riseley, Head of Strings at the NZ School of Music.

Come and enjoy this feast.  Tickets are available from Mac's Collectables, Raumati Beach; Moby Dickens', Paraparaumu Beach; The Bookshelf, Waikanae; choir members and online at tickets@kapitichorale.org.nz.  Adult $30 or 2 for $55; students $10.

The Kāpiti Chorale with up to 85 voices - one of the largest choirs on the Kāpiti Coast - normally presents three concerts each year.
