ODT Review of the May 26 Concert
"The choir achieved impressive blend and contrast of tone generally, displaying particular strength in the New Zealand Ka waiata, Pokarekare ana and Hine e Hine with fine soprano solos from Lucy Clough. Three New Zealand folk songs by Richard Oswin demonstrated the choir’s ability to produce robust contrast on command."
"Guest choir Otago Boys’ and Girls’ Combined Choir (directed by Ben Madden) also contributed to the programme. Una Noche de Verano, a contemporary work by David Hamilton, featuring a "singing bowl", was a challenging work and some aspects were particularly appealing."
