The Nelson Male Voice Choir has completed its programme, with a lovely final concert at NCMA, and a happy, year-ending get-together dinner at Mapua last evening. Songs were sung, friends hugged and hands shaken , as we now take a rest until the end of January. It has been an excellent year for us, and we thank Nigel Weeks, Pauline Boyd and Louis Lucas-Perry for their guidance, expertise and artistry . Thanks also , to our committee and support group who have cheerfully dealt with the many jobs that need doing to keep a large, dynamic choir functioning well. Have a great Christmas everybody : we'll be seeing you in the New Year. Don't forget, you gentlemen out there; you are most welcome to come and sing with us, make new friends and help swell our ranks, and strengthen our ambition to be the finest male voice choir in the southern hemisphere. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

posted 19 Nov 2018, 23:13 by Ernie Tarling

Try not to miss our Summer concert on Saturday, December 8th, at 2.00 pm. The Nelson School of Music ( NCMA) is the venue. The choir will be conducted for the last time by Andrea Hamilton, who has been so very popular with our audiences, and will be fondly remembered by the guys. She hails from Swansea, South Wales, and singing is in her blood. The door will always be open for her. We'll keep a welcome!
Our concert flyer shows a typical southern hemisphere summer scene, but northern hemisphere Christmas scenes will still form a recurring theme in the programme. We will also include a number of stirring male voice choir favourites, and some rousing songs which will have you whistling and humming all the way home. 
Some wonderful young Nelson musical talent will be our guests, to help us celebrate this magical time of the year. We'll look out for you in the audience. Don't miss it!

The Nelson Male Voice Choir is privileged to host the well-known Japanese Choir, Chor Farmer to Nelson. They are holding a concert at The Nelson School of Music (NCMA) on Thursday 6th September at 7:30pm

This is their 21st biennial Goodwill tour of Australia and New Zealand having started in 1977 and the tenth visit to Nelson. During that time, they have made many friends in Nelson, especially with host families and have established their performance as one not to miss in the Nelson musical calendar. 
Chor Farmer was formed in 1967 at the Tokyo University of Agriculture by Mr Hiroshi Masumoto who will again conduct the choir in Nelson. They will again be accompanied by Pianist, Masako Yuyama, a graduate of Tokyo University of Fine Arts and Music who regularly gives recitals as a soloist in Tokyo.
The choir itself includes graduates of the University who have been committed members of the choir for many years as well as more recent arrivals.
Chor Farmer has gained a reputation for precision and excellence, singing in many languages including Maori, English, German and, of course, Japanese and has been the winner of many prizes in choral competitions. Their repertoire includes classical music plus compositions and arrangements by Mr Masumoto who is a Schubert specialist.
