Hello from Hamilton, New Zealand!!
So today we travelled from sunny Auckland, where we appeared on the Good Morning Show, to a rather wet Hamilton for a set of masterclasses and a concert tomorrow night at The Waikato University. This is the same establishment that Chris G's father works at, and it is truly a beautiful place and setting. It was a wonderful drive between the two cities - full of incredible scenery and breathtaking views. I always knew that my first impressions of this country were going to be fantastic - I've heard so much about it from Gemma and her family and can't wait to see them all later this week!
I'm looking forward to the last two concerts on this tour - I'm really enjoying singing River's Lament in the programmes at the moment. It's a commission that the Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin wrote for us and it's very beautiful. There are 4 parts and each one has it's own charm and merit. It was certainly well-received at the Opera House in Sydney so fingers crossed that the Kiwi audiences like it as well!
So now for some photos:
A selection from The Sydney Opera House concert.
Chris G getting a wee bit over excited about seeing our poster up in Brisbane last week.
I was so chuffed that my old school friend Dan and his lovely wife Mel were able to come to the concert in Brisbane. It was great to have a proper catch up afterwards as well!
The famous Auckland Sky Tower.
Some of the beautiful views driving from Auckland airport to our hotel.
A rather big cruise ship docked in Auckland as we walked past for our lunch today.
The magnificent Auckland Town Hall where we'll be performing on Saturday night - if you look closely you can see The KS poster on the front!
