The Big Spring Sing
An Amazing Experience for Concert Goers
This weekend Nelsonians can experience a unique Mass Choir singing to the audience from all sides of Nelson College Hall, surrounding them with four part harmony, interspersed with individual performances from each choir.
Boathouse Choir coordinator Alice Robin says “Singers are gathering from Nelson, Motueka, Golden Bay and the West Coast to thrill the audience with full-surround-sound, as 190 voices celebrate the arrival of spring!” “Everyone is invited to come and immerse themselves in a rich repertoire of songs from around the world, sung with passion and committment by these seven community choirs from across the region.” She says “Be prepared to be moved, surprised, uplifted and delighted by this hugely popular bi-annual event.” Robin said this heart-of- the-community event would bring together people from all walks of life for the love of music. “Being community choirs, singing is encouraged for everyone – with no auditions to join or requirement to read music, and teaching is all done by ear.”
Community choirs are a growing phenomenum worldwide, and are increasingly well supported in the region as community group singing proves to be so beneficial for health, wellbeing and a real sense of connection.
