Chart-topper headed to Nelson Opera in the Park

One of the stars of the newly-crowned number one NZ album of the year will headline Nelson’s popular Opera in the Park.

Pene Pati of Auckland opera trio Sol3 Mio will perform at Opera in the Park on February 22, 2014. His successful Sol3 Mio debut album has just topped the New Zealand Albums Chart for the year for both the number-one album and number-one Kiwi album.

The self-titled album was this year's fastest-selling record - ranking at number one after being on sale for just five weeks.

Pati and his partner, Egyptian-born New Zealand Soprano Amina Edris, will join world-renowned, multi-instrumental jazz musician and trumpet payer James Morrison, talented Kiwi vocalist Tama Waipara, and be supported by accomplished conductor Marc Taddei and Orchestra Wellington at Opera in the Park. The open air music event will be held at Trafalgar Park.

Tickets for Nelson Opera in the Park 2014 are on sale now at nelsonfestivals.co.nz, from Nelson City Council’s Customer Service Centre or Nelson iSite.

Opera in the Park is presented by Nelson City Council as part of the Summer in Nelson programme.
