Voix de femmes

Don't miss the upcoming concerts by our women's choir under the musical direction of Marie Brown.


This choir for women was formed in 2011 under the auspices of the Alliance Française.

Under the direction of Marie Brown MNZM, this choir specialises in French and New Zealand music. If you love to sing, read music and have some knowledge of the French language contact the Music Director Marie Brown mt.brown@xtra.co.nz.

IN PARADISUM

DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND THERE WILL NOW BE TWO PERFORMANCES

5 May 2024 2pm and 4pm.

With a title like “In Paradisum” you can be assured you will be transported somewhere celestial in this divine programme of French music in the splendour of the newly restored French Gothic Erskine Chapel in Island Bay. For Voix de femmes and its repertoire of French and New Zealand music this is a match made in paradise!

The magical acoustics of this architectural treasure have been sought and experienced over time by the likes of Kiri Te Kanawa and The Vienna Boys’ Choir. Voix de femmes was privileged to sing at the re-opening of the Chapel last year and the choir is so excited to perform there again.

Our programme, including music by our favourite composers Boulanger, Fauré, Poulenc, Gounod, Debussy and Artley, seems written for this venue. We will be joined by the magnificent Rebecca Steel on flute with two fine young soloists from the New Zealand School of Music.

With strictly limited seating these concerts will sell quickly.
