The Hutt Valley Singers & The Wairarapa Singers present: Cole Porter: You're the Top

The Hutt Valley Singers, The Wairarapa Singers along with pianist Thomas Nikora, a fabulous band and some great music - bring you an afternoon of Cole Porter hits!

Two choirs and five musicians present a concert that will kindle memories and warm the heart! Cole Porter's songs are valued for their beauty, humour and intelligence, as well as their unexpected jokes and word play. His songs make us laugh, they make us cry, and they touch thje deepest truths of our emotions. In the 1920's, 30's and 40's the sophisticated rhymes and cultivated imagery of Cole Porter's lyrics made him one of the pre-eminent song-smiths.

He is famous for incredibly witty lyrics with erudite rhymes and imagery. Porter's Broadway musical plays were wvery successful, and he wrote music for Hollywood movies which were very popular. His songs "Shine Like Jewels" one critic wrote, "shot through with love that sometimes feels like pain". Cole Porter's songs continue to be performed and enjoyed by modern audiences. "One of the most important composers of the 20th century" - Radio NZ.
