The Southern Sinfonia of New Zealand
Tally Ho! Dunedin Sound Songs & Singers
Saturday 28 February 2015, 7:30 pm
Dunedin Town Hall
Peter Adams Conductor
International soprano Anna Leese will sing with Southern Sinfonia in the Dunedin Town Hall on 28 February 2015, 7:30pm. But this time, the repertoire will be quite different.
Tally Ho! Dunedin Sound Songs & Singers will bring Anna and the Sinfonia together with a host of local singers and musicians including Graeme Downes, Martin Phillipps, David Kilgour and Shayne Carter to revisit more than 20 iconic Dunedin songs, many of them from the internationally-acclaimed period known as the Dunedin Sound. The Chills, The Clean, Straitjacket Fits, The Verlaines, The Bats, Look Blue Go Purple, The Puddle and The 3Ds are some of the bands whose songs will be included, underlining the ever-expanding strength of rock song-writing in the city since Flying Nun released The Clean's Tally Ho! in 1981.
The Southern Sinfonia's 2015 Concert Series will be announced early in 2015.
