Classical sparks

Classical Sparks is now a Christchurch institution. As a celebration of summer and the joy of living in Christchurch it’s hard to beat. The coming together of people from all walks of life in a relaxed atmosphere, sitting or lying on the grass with picnics and children and enjoying the music – it has a charm all of its own. This is our community at its best (like shovelling liquefaction for your neighbours, but more fun).

This year it takes place on Sunday 5 February. They’re featuring some great music with a programme featuring top Australian opera singers Jud Arthur and Virgilio Marino and it includes, to name a just a few favourites:

First half (with links to the music in Naxos Music Library)

Second half

It should be a lovely evening of music, so see you there.
