We're proud to support the 'Kāpiti remembers its own' Armistice Day concert with the Ōtaki RSA and Paraparaumu RSA on Sunday 11 November at 2pm at Southward Theatre, commemorating the end of World War I through song, dance, music, and poetry.
The story is a universal one, told thoughtfully and passionately through the Kāpiti lens - interpreted and performed by our communities for our communities.
The concert frames its story through four sections, with a twenty minute intermission in the middle when refreshments will be on sale. The concert sections are:
1. A Call to Arms
2. Leaving New Zealand
~ intermission ~
4. Coming Home
and includes performances by:
Kāpiti Pipes and Drums, Kāpiti Light Orchestra, Kāpiti Brass Band, Coasters Musical Theatre, Tahiwi Whanau, Rikihana Whanau, Tumeke Group, and Te Waka Group.
Choirs: Ōtaki Primary School, Raumati Beach School, and Kāpiti College Barbershop Group.
Soloists: Brent Bythell, Noel Signal, Ryan Edwards, and Bianca Tahere.
