The Jubilate Singers
first concert for 2018 features guest Musical Director, Matthew Everingham, with an
exciting programme entitled: 'Songs my Mother Taught Me'.
"While our regular Musical Director, Susan Densem, has taken sabbatical leave for the year, the Jubilate Singers has taken the opportunity to offer this role to special guest musicians. First up is Matthew Everingham, Christchurch based musical director, conductor, composer and pianist, who has put together a delightful programme of choral music written for, by and about mothers from the Renaissance to the present day.
Our programme features composers Aleotti, Finzi, Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn, Whitacre, Lauridsen, Sondheim and Lennon & McCartney among others. Also featured is guest soprano, Hannah Wheeler."
Matt attended St Bede's College, the University of Canterbury and Trinity College, London. Matt's first encounter with the Jubilate Singers was with the Court Theatre's production 'The Events' in 2016. He recently completed a successful season at the Court as Deputy Musical Director for 'Chicago', and is currently in rehearsals for the Showbiz production 'Wicked'.
