Beethoven Mass in C | Flatischler/Bertl Space Beyond Space

Every classical music fan knows Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, but few are aware of the treasure of the Mass in C, which he composed 17 years earlier, in 1807. His genius pushed boundaries, and later generations have come to value it as Beethoven through and through. Reinhard Flatischler, composer, master drummer and music therapist extraordinaire, will have you spellbound with this exciting new work, Space Beyond Space. Through musical innovation and rhythmic ‘colouring’, Flatischler and thrilling internationally-acclaimed percussionist Túpac Mantilla aim to draw the audience into a multi-layered experience of the space around and beyond them.

  • Jacob Siohane-Royle

    Picture of Jacob Siohane-RoyleI joined late last year in the Soprano 1 section, and am currently Auckland Choral’s youngest member, at 14 years old.  Born and raised in Auckland, I have worked with professional music companies such as New Zealand Opera, Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, Opera Factory, and others.  Auckland Choral rehearsals are generally the highlight of my week.  In 2015 I gained first place in Opera Factory’s Idol competition. This year in the Aria international vocal competition, I came 1st in two of the four categories available.  Outside of music, I study in year 10 at Kristin School in Albany, and I play flute and piano.  

     
  • Alison Miller

    Picture of Alison MillerHi, I’m Alison Miller. I have been singing all my life, as both my parents had good voices, and we followed in their footsteps. I’ve sung in both church and community choirs, but when I was a pupil in the EGGS choir, we sang the third chorus part in St Matthew Passion in the Town Hall with Ray Wilson conducting and I was smitten. Years later when we returned to Auckland, and heard Auckland Choral singing Brubeck’s Light in the Wilderness in 1969, I knew I had to belong to this magnificent choir.. I joined in 1970 as a soprano 1, and have been a member since then, with the first concert being Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast, with 6 weeks rehearsal time.
    Various committee positions have kept me involved, and I was secretary (in those days - a very basic General Manager) for 7 years, before taking on the Librarian’s position. I was very proud to see our daughter Sandy join Choral while she was still at school, and when I joined the alto line I remember her moral support for me as a new alto. Auckland Choral is my life and the members are my music family, which I am very conscious of every time we perform on stage. Unfortunately I have had to take leave on several occasions because of ill health, but one positive to that is I’ve been in the audience to witness the choir’s great presentations from in front of the stage.

    Away from choir and family, I take a team of handbell ringers who meet each week in East Auckland.
