A 25th birthday calls for a rousing celebration and we intend to mark it in suitable style. Joins us for a celebratory event centred around Purcell’s magnificent Welcome Odes, in the company of a host of Dunedin favourites and friends from over the years. Music by Handel, Corelli and Blow completes this virtuosic feast — the perfect showcase for our wonderful singers and instrumentalists.
And, like all good birthdays, this one will end with a great party. We hope you will join us after our concert at Greyfriars Kirk for a slice of cake, a glass or two of bubbles and a late-night celebration.
Welcome to all the pleasures
