Sun 9 Apr [*] Viva Voce Concert Chamber, Auckland Town Hall 5.30pm The Boss
Here we look at the vexed topic of absolute and unbridled power – those who wield it and those (all the rest of us) who are affected by it. In music by the likes of Wilbye, Purcell, Vaughan Williams, Orbán, Pearsall, Rutter and Hamilton, and featuring Eric Whitacre’s spine-tingling Her sacred spirit soars, we pay due or reluctant homage to kings, queens, despots, dictators and demagogues. It’s going to be an amazing concert. Truly. Amazing. A perfect 10. We’re going to make a cappella great again! CONDUCTOR:John Rosser

Sun 3 Sep [*] Viva Voce Concert Chamber, Auckland Town Hall 5.30pm Musical beasts and where to find them
We take the raw sounds of the world’s musical zoo (a cacophony of cackles, squawks, grunts and howls), filter them through such noted animal interpreters as Josquin, Weelkes, Janequin, Tchaikovsky, Hindemith, Barber, Tavener and of course the Beatles, and blend the result into a concert of concordant delight. Ola Gjeilo’s Unicornis captivatur is a highlight – a playful modern take on a mad mediaeval manuscript. It’s a beastly concert, but also quite heavenly. CONDUCTOR:John Rosser

Sun 19 Nov [*] Viva Voce Concert Chamber, Auckland Town Hall 5.30pm Family matters
Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, rellies, the distant uncle no-one talks about – these are the stars of our final 2017 concert. Of course, it’s the relationships between them that interest us, be they happy and fulfilling or complicated and fraught. We’ll illustrate these through motets, madrigals, part-songs, folksong, spirituals, jazz and pop numbers, and in Carissimi’s beautiful early oratorio Jephte – for soloists, chorus and chamber organ – with its final, very moving lament. CONDUCTOR: John Rosser
