Join us for our annual Christmas festivities as we once again share Handel’s enduring masterwork, Messiah.  Possibly the most well known work in the choral repertoire, the drama in this oratorio ranges from intimate arias to the immensely famous and stirring Hallelujah chorus.  We warmly welcome our regular patrons for whom this performance is an annual tradition – and look forward to meeting newcomers looking to make their Christmas particularly special.

Madeleine Crump – Harp

Hawke’s Bay Orchestra

We close the year with a real treat – a concert featuring some of the greatest music of the classical era.  Beethoven’s first symphony honours Mozart and Haydn and represents a continuation of our long term project of performing all nine of his symphonies – arguably the greatest symphony cycle of them all.  Carefully calculated to please the Partisan audiences after whom it is named, Mozart’s 31st symphony continues to impress with its mix of elegance and grandeur and acts as a suitable opening to this programme, which them features one of Mozart’s most enduringly popular concerti, the double concerto for flute and harp.
