Hastings Choristers’ “Shivers of Wind”

Hastings Choristers is excited to present “Shivers of Wind”, a concert showcasing the interplay of poetry and song. This will be held on Saturday 1st June at 2.00pm at the Baptist Church, Port Macquarie. Tickets are available at the door or at the Glasshouse Box Office.

Under the direction of Craig M. Wood, the choristers venture on an experiential journey of contemporary and classical pieces interspersed with recitations of poetry by Lorraine Gibson and the cultured voice of Rachel Jacket. Be mesmerised by the Bass Baritone voice of Ian Castle as guest soloist and the choirs Cantorus and Cantabile, creating an afternoon not to be missed.

The popular female ensemble, Cantabile, will showcase the versatility of their clear and shimmering sound. Their repertoire ranges from the rich harmonies of “Weep No More” which combines John Keats’ lyricism with the music of contemporary composer, David N. Childs, to the fun of “Dear John” by Stephen Hopkins.

Central to “Shivers of Wind” is the power of the combined voices of the full choir. They move from the beauty of Mendelssohn’s “Die Nachtigall” to the haunting Latvian folk song, “Who is Crying?”, along to the exuberance of “Shout for Joy” by Dan Davison.  The climax of the concert is the full choir singing “What Sweeter Music”, where the words of Robert Herrick have inspired John Rutter’s fine and sensitive music to create a powerfully expressive experience.

Join us for an afternoon that will touch your emotions and lift your spirits.
