Come along to our next Winter Concert Series taking place at the National War Memorial's Hall of Memories, this Sunday 14 August 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 free 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 June 2016.
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. They presented an earlier Winter Concert programme in June 2016 featuring choral music and poetry on the themes of loss and remembrance.
2016 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language. Anon. are delighted to be performing a selection of music inspired by his works, including compositions from four different centuries and in a range of styles. The programme includes works by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Sir John Tavener, American composer Matthew Harris, and New Zealand's own David Hamilton.

The concert will commence at 4pm and concludes at 4:45pm. Guests are invited to then attend the Last Post ceremony at 5pm.
Admission is free and no RSVPs are required.
