First up in the Auckland Choral 2010 season is their free concert “01 PESE MUAMUA” on this Sunday 7 March at 5pm at the Auckland Town Hall. Pese Muamua means ‘song number one’. The choir will call ‘mua mua mua’— “let’s begin, let’s begin, let’s begin” — the words which are used in traditional Samoan singing to introduce a set of songs. This symbolises the beginning of all the ‘songs’ Auckland Choral will sing in 2010.
I enjoyed my introduction to choral siging last year. Why not get along and see if you’ll enjoy it too? The Town Hall is definitely a great space to listen to the harmonies and melodies of all the voices.
