Forsyth Barr is proud to be the Principal Sponsor of Jonathan Lemalu in Concert — Songs in the Key of Life
One of Dunedin’s favourite sons, Grammy Award winning bass opera singer, Jonathan Lemalu, returns home to the Dunedin Town Hall after another busy international season which saw him in opera, concert, recital and recording.
He leaves “classical opera” in the suitcase in this recital programme with acclaimed pianist Terence Dennis, entitled Songs in the Key of Life, devised especially for this evening.
The concert’s programmed journey explores American and English repertoire, including Finzi, Lehrer, Bolcolm, Copland’s Old American Songbook, and from classic favourites such as Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, Kern’s Showboat, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific and Carousel, as well as a song cycle of famous nursery rhymes written especially for him by the late Sir Richard Rodney Bennett. All in English, with a running commentary by the man himself, it’s a truly unique and intimate evening with a very proud Dunedin-ite.
Date: Wednesday, 12 April, 2017.
Time and venue: 7:00pm at the Dunedin Town Hall.
