It is with great pleasure that we can now present the Faure Requiem featuring the Canterbury Secondary Schools Honour Choir and Atlas Voices. Due to the many postponements we have all suffered through this year, we have decided to present this concert with Maestro John Linker at the organ and to make this concert free to the public. We hope you can support us with a koha donation but mostly we’d love to sing this great work for you.
Atlas Voices began in 2011 as a collection of Christchurch’s best vocal talent dedicated to presenting exciting vocal music performances to audiences in Canterbury. The ensemble continues to sell-out their shows and receives regular standing ovations while they continue to push the boundaries and expectations of choral and vocal music Our dedication to cutting-edge works and productions continues in 2021 with Considering Matthew Shepard in April. We also continue our successful collaboration with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra as the core contracted choir for the amazing Symphonic Chorus.
The founder and artistic Director of Atlas Voices is Ravil Atlas. he is currently the chorus master for the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra Chorus and the New Zealand Opera in Christchurch.
