An Afternoon with Dr Jenny Burchell
Dr Jenny Burchell is our guest at the next Friends Event on Sunday, October 18 at 3pm.
Jenny researched and wrote the acclaimed ‘The Life and Times of a Choral Society-
Dunedin’s City Choir 1863-2013’. The story of the choir has been intertwined with
that of orchestral performance over much of the past 150 years and a history rich in
artistic development (and ripe anecdote) provides the basis for what will be a
fascinating afternoon. As Jenny notes, ‘from sublime harmony to outright warfare,
on and off stage, the Dunedin Choral Society has experienced the full gamut of
hazardous liaisons with orchestral forces of all shapes and sizes since 1863’.
The City Choir Dunedin and the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra are part of the
artistic heritage of our city and the talk will examine the twists and turns of an
earlier age of choral performance as the two groups developed, over the decades, the
exemplary standards of the present. This Event is not to be missed and Friends and
friends of Friends are warmly welcomed to come along and enjoy!
