Following the success of The Armed Man in 2023, Hamilton City Brass join forces with an epic local choir to perform the NZ premiere of Christopher Tin’s To Shiver The Sky.

This is the story of flight told through music and the words of 11 of history’s pioneers: pilots, engineers, storytellers, scientists, stargazers and statesmen.

Audiences will hear from the likes of Leonardo da Vinci, aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart's poem Courage, and John F. Kennedy's address at Rice University on the nation's space effort.

Conducted by Maria Colvin, and expertly arranged by Todd Smith, Hamilton City Brass will be joined by a Festival Chorus of 70 singers, a chamber choir, a children’s choir, and two outstanding soloists.

BYO rug or low seating.

As this is a licensed event, no liquor can be brought onsite.

To Shiver the Sky qualifies for multi show discount off GA tickets.
