Cellists of Otago: Cello Extravaganza

Indulge in the extravagance of the largest ever cello ensemble concert in the Dunedin Town Hall with cello ensembles varying from 16 to 70 players, directed by Heleen du Plessis.

The celebrated Dunedin-based cello ensemble will be joined by the well-known, award winning New Zealand soprano, Rebecca Ryan. Cellists of Otago will be extended in some works for mass cello ensemble by players from Dunedin and the region. These players from all ages and levels from beginner to very advanced, including invited cellists from the rest of New Zealand will be conducted by Peter Adams. 

The programme includes well-known and -loved repertoire such as Villa-Lobos’ magnificent Bachianas Brasilieras no. 5. and Klengel’s Hymnus for 12 celli.  Known for their innovative programming of great variety, Cellists of Otago will not disappoint, performing newly arranged works especially for this spectacular occasion by Peter Adams and Keith Moss. 

Don’t miss this once in a long-time opportunity to experience cello playing in excess, excellence, and extravagance!
