We had an awesome concert at the Hastings Music Society today with some great solo performances by Kathy on flute with Linda Gilchrist on piano. And also some lovely singing solos by K-Ci Williams and Lisa Eagle.
What a great warm up for our Taupo concert in 2 weeks!
We are very excited to be doing a road trip to Taupo on Labour weekend Sunday 23rd Oct to do a special combined concert with the Stellar Singers.
Here is the press release for the Concert......
Two incredible choirs, one from Auckland and one from Hawke’s Bay, have decided to meet in Taupo combining their talents to bring you a stunning one-off concert on the Sunday afternoon of Labour Weekend!
Both Choirs are known for their modern style, beautiful harmonies and fun presentation and have gained huge popularity in their respective cities.
Stellar Singers’ reputation as “Auckland’s premiere a Capella choir” is well deserved. Bringing a unique sound to the NZ choir scene, they are known for their quality smooth blended full sound,
exciting repertoire and fun stage presence. They embrace every genre of music including contemporary a cappella, jazz, gospel, sacred and secular choral music and barbershop.
They are truly passionate about high quality singing and bringing communities together through their music. As well as hosting their own concerts, they perform at various corporate and professional events most recently singing for NZ Breakers awards evening and backing vocals for an international artist Josh Groban's 2016 World Tour in Auckland.
Four’s Company have a reputation of their own making their mark on the Hawke’s Bay music scene, gaining recognition at concerts and events and entertaining in many different forms over the 5 years the group has been together.
They have performed as guest artists at private functions; have
produced 2 Operas; 2 Broadway Showcases and dozens of concerts and street performances.
They have been invited to New York to sing onstage at the Lincoln Centre for the Performing Arts in June of 2017 and the group has been working hard for a year to make this opportunity happen for 26 of their performers.
Four’s Company have a style that is light-hearted and energetic and much like the Stellar Singers, they sing a broad programme of music including Pop, Gospel, Classical and Folk.
Choirs of this calibre are a treat to listen to, so don’t miss seeing both of these fantastic groups perform live at Rotary House on Sunday 23rd of October at 2.30pm (afternoon tea included).
The proceeds from this concert will be put toward Four’s Company’s fundraising for their trip to New York and toward travel costs for the Stellar Singers.
Four's Company will 'Make it There' and are now confirmed, flights booked, accommodation sorted and voices primed for a performance at the Lincoln Centre for the Performing Arts in New York City 2017 with Distinguished Concerts International New York - DCINY
We would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks to all of our wonderful supporters, patrons and members.
These people have worked tirelessly to fund raise an enormous amount of money which will assist with the cost of getting 28 performers to New York.
We still have further fundraising to go....so please keep coming to our concerts and events...we appreciate your support enormously!
We have some amazing concerts coming up.......
In October we will be singing at Hastings Music Society on Sunday 9th Oct.
On Labour weekend we will be doing a road trip to Taupo to join theStellar Singers from Auckland in a very special joint concert on Sunday 23rd Oct.

Sorry all but our Almost Spring Sing concert has had to be cancelled.
A third of our group has been hit hard by the flu this week and more of us are struggling to sing. We would hate to give a mediocre concert so are cancelling this time.
We are planning more concerts in the near future leading up to Christmas so stay tuned.
We have a great little concert coming up in a few weeks at the wonderful Trinity Methodist Church in Napier.
Since the days are getting longer we have called the concert our Almost Spring Sing.
Come and join us on the 7th August at 7pm.
Experience the fun, dynamic and uplifting sound of 28 talented Hawkes Bay Singers delivering beautiful four part harmonies in a performance which will include many well known songs from pop, gospel, folk and classical roots.
We hope to get your toes tapping and leave you all warm on the inside.
We had a lovely concert for the residents of Summerset in Taradale. It always is a pleasure to sing for these pleasant people and they were a very appreciative audience who helped us with our fundraising efforts to get to New York. Thanks Summerset, we will be back soon to sing for you soon.
We had a fabulous week singing. On Monday we got asked to sing at Napier Rotary Clubs handover dinner. We did a lovely little concert and blew their socks off. the President Bruce said we were the highlight of the evening.
Then on the Saturday night we did a fundraising Dinner and Concert at No.5 Cafe and Larder. To a wonderful sold out audience we sung nearly all new songs with some great solos and duets by Antonio Della Barca, Olivia Karlsson and K-Ci Williams.
