Pictured here a performance of Last Tango at Rocky Bay Hall. Society puts out call for production singers Handel s Messiah and Fiddler on the Roof are two of the productions the Waiheke Island Choral Society has planned for this year and the call is out for singers to audition. Rehearsals for the Messiah will begin on Tuesday, February 1, at 7pm at Whittaker s Musical Museum. Society spoksman Mark James says any singers who would like to be a part of this are welcome to attend. Practice music can be downloaded from the society s website, www.waihekechoral.org.nz. The Messiah will be performed on April 9, 16 and 17 in line with Handel s desire for it to be an Easter oratorio, Mr James says. The performances will take place at St Peter s Catholic Church in Oneroa and, as with the 2008 and 2009 performances, members from the island s other choral groups will join the choral society s singers. Most of the soloists from the 2009 concerts will return for the April performances. Auditions for Fiddler on the Roof, due to run in July and August, will be held on February 16 at 7pm at Artworks Theatre. Anyone interested in this well-known Broadway musical which has parts for adults and children, is invited to audition. While those with principal parts will begin rehearsals in late February, most of the cast will start in April. Finally, beginning in September, the Choral Society will prepare for the December performance of Britten s Saint Nicolas Can- tata. Written for a high school ensemble, Saint Nicolas is usually performed by young musicians and a children s choir. The Choral Society will be approaching the island s schools to take part in the show, Mr James says. Guided walks to continue The Auckland Council free guided walks are continuing every Wednesday and Sunday. The walks with a professional guide start at 10.45am at Matiatia wharf -- meet- ing the 10am ferry sailing from Auckland. The walks take place rain or shine so participants are advised to bring clothing for all eventualities, plus sunscreen, water and snacks. For more information call Janine James on 027-465-7479.
