St George’s Presbyterian Church: Fields & Feathers

Date: May 9th, 2021 - May 9th, 2021

Fields & Feathers will take place on Sunday 9th May at 3pm
in St George’s Presbyterian Church in Takapuna.
(Doors will open at 2:30pm)

Join us as we will celebrating all kinds of earth’s creatures through songs.

Our repertoire will cover a wide variety of songs from lullabies, funny folk songs and modern poems, to more classical pieces, including some animal crackers from Eric Whitacre, a sweet Samoan nursery song arranged by our wonderful friend Steven Rapana and Rejoice in the Lamb by Benjamin Britten, a somewhat quirky but colourful poem dedicated to praising God through the admiration of all living creatures.

I’m sure that all of you know that the cow goes Moo… but did you know that the frog goes Ribbit, the cicada goes Tarara-takitakita and the Swan goes La-La-La ? Well, let us show you during this fun-filled afternoon in Takapuna!
The date will coincide with Mother’s Day; what better day to spend some quality time listening to some uplifting music!
