There will be acapella aplenty when two powerhouse Hamilton choruses present a special concert in Hamilton on Saturday.
The Mighty River Harmony men’s chorus and the Waikato Rivertones women’s chorus will share the stage at the University of Waikato’s Academy of Performing Arts on Saturday, November 28.
The show is described as a celebration of the relative freedom New Zealanders have enjoyed – in contrast to others around the world – since the initial Covid-19 lockdown earlier this year.
Each chorus will break out new repertoire that two groups have been refining since the lockdown, including show-stoppers such as Africa, Seven Bridges Road, Candy Cane Lane and I Am Woman.

MC Mark Bunting will ensure the entertainment flows seamlessly.
The choruses will be joined by special guests Dragonflies – a young mixed-quartet from Wellington. Other vocal quartets will also perform, as will Sergio’s Trombone Ensemble.
A brand-new finale number with nearly 100 performers singing in eight-part harmony promises to be the highlight.
It is a show that will be staged twice. Tickets are selling fast for the evening performance, but the addition of a matinee show at 2pm should ensure no one will have to miss out.
Admission is by allocated seating, so concert-goers are advised to not leave buying their tickets to the last minute.
