With this wide-ranging concert featuring music of peace and remembrance, Auckland Choral honours those 18,000 New Zealand casualties — including 5000 who died — a hundred years ago in the horror of the Ypres front line around Passchendaele.

Music by Belgian, French and New Zealand composers will be performed, including the calm Requiem by French composer Maurice Duruflé, works by the Belgian-born César Franck, and a moving solo sonata by Belgian violinist-composer Eugène Ysaÿe.

Musical tributes from New Zealanders will feature work by David Hamilton and new music on the theme of peace by young composers Sarah Fouhy and Lachlan Grant, first and second prize winners respectively in the 2016 APO Student Composers competition.
