Conducted by John Rosser
The 25th Anniversary Concert of Auckland’s Viva Voce Choir recorded in the Auckland Town Hall.
The programme includes a variety of choral works from a wide range of composers including Monteverdi, Lassus, Britten and on the lighter side, Lennon/McCartney. Viva Voce is a 30-voice chamber choir that has established a reputation for injecting vitality and fresh ideas into the New Zealand choral scene. In its 25 years the choir has given well over 300 performances and has premièred many new compositions. Specialising in the innovative programming and attractive presentation of a huge variety of music, Viva Voce strives equally for excellence and entertainment.
Its members are trained singers and several have won success in this country's top vocal competitions. John Rosser, the choir's Musical Director, founded Viva Voce in 1985. He regularly guest conducts a number of other choirs and orchestras and is Associate Conductor and Chorus Master for New Zealand Opera.
Often engaged for workshops, adjudication and massed choral events (such as Auckland's annual Starlight Symphony), Rosser chairs the Governance Board of the New Zealand Choral Federation.
