Mosaic Says ♫ THOSE WERE THE DAYS.........
And if you want to find out when those days were, then you need to be at St Andrew’s Church, Cambridge, on Saturday 9th June when MOSAIC Waikato Modern Choir presents its Annual Concert. As always, the concert will include ‘something for everyone’ – from a beautiful Maori melody to a medley of Broadway songs that will bring back memories for many! The all-comers , unauditioned choir, was established in 2007 and now performs at many various events and functions – including the Cambridge Autumn Festival, the Tulip Festival , the Waikato Show, Anzac Day service and the Cambridge Christmas Festival. MOSAIC Choir comprises folk from all walks of life who come together purely because they just love to sing. This happens each week under the guidance of the choir’s exuberant and hugely talented Musical Director Brooke Baker, and equally gifted accompanist Cindy Xia.
This year, the choir is delighted to welcome Hamilton Band “Date Month Year” as its Guest Artist for the concert. The band was formed in 2003 and with an evolving membership the line-up has included musicians from many walks of life, including Teacher, Students, Brewer, Politician, Social Worker, Manager, Team Leader and Creative Entrepreneur. As well as performing widely, not only in bars but for live theatre, festivals and alongside a full symphony Orchestra, the music of “Date Month Year” has featured in TV soundtracks, adverts and films – enjoying airplay internationally from Mexico to the UK, across Europe, USA and Australia.
The band’s unique approach to songwriting engages its members –inviting them to each bring their own personality and “flavour” weaving together dynamic elements throughout the conceptual, musical, lyrical, and phrasing elements, and in live interpretation. The central vision of “Date Month Year” is a framework for making music in which all contributors can shine. The choir is excited and honoured that the band has agreed to be the guest artist for this year’s concert.
There will be 2 concerts on Saturday 9th June – a shortened version at 2.00pm and the full concert at 5.00pm Tickets for the 2.00pm show cost $10 per Adult; $5 With Gold Card; Under 13 Free. Tickets for the full concert at 5.00pm cost $15 per Adult; $10 With Gold Card; Under 13 Free. Tickets are available from Paper Plus, Cambridge, from choir members, and door sales (If all tickets not sold prior). Last year’s concerts were a sell-out, and the choir looks forward to full audiences again this year at its Celebration of Voice and Music ♫
