We’ve nearly done it. We’ve almost made it through one of the craziest, up and down, round and round, truly bizarre years in recent memory. We think it’s high time for something warm, comforting and trustworthy - with a healthy dose of seasonal nostalgia. This December 2nd, Supertonic is delighted to present for one night only Merry Christmas, Ya Filthy Animal - a cheeky Christmas send-off for 2020.
This choral concert will indulge your sappiest and silliest Christmas movie memories. Including choral numbers from all-time Christmas movie favourites Love Actually, The Polar Express and Home Alone, you’ll also be treated to nostalgic numbers from classic films like Holiday Inn and Meet Me in St. Louis. These will be complemented by solo and small group numbers, plus a live performance of our digital lockdown anthem Reach Out, composed by Supertonic member Martha Machin-Palmer. And what would a Christmas concert be without some sing-along carols to ignite the festive spirit?
Supertonic is a 50-strong SATB Wellington choir that takes pride in presenting a diverse range of music. This concert is our chance to celebrate some of the music that we all know and love, and your opportunity to sing some seasonal songs with us. Supertonic’s most recent concert, Saturday Night’s Alright, sold out within 48 hours, prompting the addition of a second show. Don’t miss out on the fun - come and sing along with Supertonic!
