The Waimea Consort is an a cappella ensemble performing medieval, renaissance, baroque, romantic, and 20th century music. Since
its inception in the fall of 1998, the group of amateur singers focuses on bringing rarely sung vocal music to the Island of Hawai'i.
The Waimea Consort, a 501(c)3 organization, puts on at least two different programs every year. The concerts are performed twice,
once in Waimea, and again elsewhere on the island, giving the audience two venues from which to choose.
The group is active in community events, from caroling at the Waimea Farmers Market to singing at fundraisers on the island.
Please contact the Director
for information about the Consort, or to inquire
about performances, joining the group, or proposing venues.
The Waimea Consort will be going through changes as its founder and current director, Christian Veillet, will be moving to Tucson, AZ, at the end of January to lead the Large Binocular Telescope Observatory for the coming years. A last concert with Christian, at least for now, is coming soon!
Celebrating 14 years of a cappela vocal music with the Waimea Consort
Friday, 25 January 2013 - 6pm - St Augustine Church, Kapa'au - map
Saturday, 26 January 2013 - 4:30pm - Davies memorial Chapel , HPA Campus, Waimea - map
This concert will give the Consort the opportunity to revisit some of the pieces which were the highlights of its young years as it is entering its teens.
From Monteverdi to Milhaud, Dufay to Duruflé, Tallis to Tavener... the program will explore the rich a cappela
repertoire which has been one of the trademarks of the ensemble over the years.
While this concert will be more an au-revoir than an adieu, it will definitely be an evening of celebration of a cappella vocal music, which current and past singers of the Consort will be happy to share with you!
