Come along to our next Winter Concert Series taking place at the National War Memorial's Hall of Memories, this Sunday 19 June at 4pm.
We’re encouraging Sunday visitors who may want to take a look around the Great War Exhibition in the Dominion Museum to then wander down the steps to the Hall of Memories, enjoy a 45-minute concert featuring some of our finest classical musicians and then attend the ‘Soldier’s Story’ reading and the Last Post ceremony outside, at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior at 5pm.
Members of Anon. Vocal Ensemble performing at the National War Memorial in 2015.
The Anon. Vocal Ensemble made their debut performance in a concert of remembrance at the National War Memorial in November 1996. The Ensemble is a mixed-voice chamber choir based in Wellington, which specialises in A cappella music from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.
The Ensemble is delighted to be performing again in the National War Memorial's Hall of Memories, presenting a concert of choral music and poetry on the themes of loss and remembrance. The programme features works by Ralph Vaughan Williams, John Tavener and Charles H. H. Parry and arrangements of folk and pop songs including Eric Clapton's 'Tears in Heaven' and Neil Young's 'After the Goldrush'.

Admission is free and no RSVPs are required.
