Here is where we keep all our choristers updated on various information:

Happy New Year!

We welcome current and new members to our first rehearsal on Tuesday 15th February at 7pm at NCMA, 48 Nile Street, Nelson. 

Please bring a copy of the Messiah if you have one. The choir owns around 70 copies to distribute to those singers who wish to borrow.

We will rehearse our first concert scheduled for late June 2022. (date to be confirmed)

Our conductor, Jason Balla, has created an exciting programme entitled ‘Choral PASSION’

Jason describes the programme as intense, passionate, a great sing and also flexible, in case we need to be nimble due to scheduling performances during these difficult times.  It uses the choruses from the MESSIAH part 2 (the Passion choruses)  and includes chorales from J.S.Bach’s St. Matthew Passion as well as choral motets by Haydn and Mozart.  The Haydn motet is a great miniature, dramatic romp and the Mozart motet is a foretaste of the choral writing later found in the Requiem. And yes, there will be instrumentalists with a string octet, winds, percussion and organist.
