WHAT THE PRESS SAY
“The word Prodigy seems to entirely fall short of this soft-spoken young man’s skills, he coaxes sounds and melodies out of his instrument that literally drop jaws.” The Calgary Herald, CANADA
“Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in their thousands towards the main stage to witness a young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show-stopper.” The Firefly Column, USA
“Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will become an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation.” The Indie Blender, CANADA
“reinventing roots guitar” – Rhythms Magazine, AUSTRALIA
“Watching Daniel Champagne perform is a once in a lifetime experience. He is a true prodigy that plays like no one else could possibly play unless they spent at least two lifetimes studying the art.” BW Review, NEW ZEALAND
‘Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical’ Themusic.com.au, AUSTRALIA
Lunchtime Concert: Chroma Chamber Choir
In this 45-minute concert, Chroma Chamber Choir and conductor Costa Simpson celebrate the diverse and colourful voices of Aotearoa New Zealand.
The programme features arrangements of well-known Maori and Pacific Island tunes alongside the music of Kiwi composers including David Childs, Katherine Dienes-Williams, and David Hamilton.
The world premiere performance of Motet for a Starling called Matisse, by composer and choir member Mary Celeste — and featuring Matisse herself in a starring role — is presented, as well as a selection of popular songs by artists including The Beatles and Lorde.
This performance promises to be a touching reflection on what it means to call Aotearoa New Zealand home.
NCMA’s Lunchtime Concert Series is proudly sponsored by Nelson Pine Industries.
