Prepare to Feel the Spirit when the Ars Nova Choir lifts the lid of the Crystal Palace.
The 45-strong Taranaki choir will sing a suite of Black American gospel music arranged or written by John Rutter.
In this moving and uplifting session, audiences will hear songs that came from the voices of slaves dreaming to be free.
People will be treated to songs with driving rhythm, like the much-loved When the Saints Go Marching In and others with soulful sounds, like Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child.
Feel the Spirit will also feature soaring solos from Taranaki voice teacher and cabaret performer Lisa Rangi, who will sing with the choir.
Under the direction of Christopher Luke, this spiritual celebration with the Ars Nova Choir explores the music in which slaves found solace while under oppression. A small instrumental ensemble will accompany the choir.
