Come and hear Dunedin's talented musicians perform a magnificent feast of some of Mozart's most popular music at the Dunedin Town Hall. The DSO, along with City Choir Dunedin, will be joined by musicians and singers of all ages and skill levels who love Mozart, and who are keen to be part of our glorious community play-in concert – ‘Mozart’s Monster Mash’. Also on the programme will be the much-loved 'Hallelujah' Chorus (from Handel’s 'The Messiah’), as well as 'The Monster Mash' which is bound to be a hit with the audience as audience participation will be encouraged!
For this special event, held in association with the Otago Daily Times, community and student instrumentalists and singers from around the Otago region will work with their DSO and City Choir Dunedin counterparts. Together, they'll create a mass community orchestral and choral spectacular, performing short works by Mozart and Handel which have been specially arranged for players of different skill levels so that everyone can join in.
Also on the programme will be performances of works by Mozart by three leading University of Otago Music students - all appearing as soloists with the DSO for the first time: Skyla Murray - Adagio for violin and orchestra, Cameron Monteath - First movement from Piano Concerto No. 16, and Rhiannon Cooper (soprano) singing “Per pietà, ben mio, perdona” from the opera 'Cosi fan tutte'.
Marshalling the huge assembly of performers will be Dunedin’s virtuoso maestro Peter Adams.
A massive musical feast not to be missed.
