Going for Baroque
The Hamilton Civic Choir and the Opus Chamber Orchestra came together on Saturday 6th May, 2017 at the St Peter’s Cathedral in Hamilton for a concert titled “Going For Baroque”.
“This concert, which displayed the choir performing at a remarkable level, was indeed something to cherish.”
Featuring Handel’s well known ‘Zadok the Priest’, Bach’s Lutheran Mass in G Minor, and Vivaldi’s Gloria, the performance featured soloists from within the ranks of the choir itself.
“Without the existence of [the Department of Music at the University of Waikato]…We would not have had Zadok performed with such dramatic zest and technical command. We would not have experienced the extraordinary soundscapes of Vivaldi’s Gloria with its superbly under-wrought sensitivity and passion.”
