Don’t miss this one night only of music that has never been heard before, and will possibly never be heard again.

Jazz Aotearoa and The Third Eye presents The Arthur Street Loft Orchestra - a creative residency in the heart of Te Aro.
Each week we present the music of a different composer (or composers) performed by an eclectic array of large ensembles. From introspective 10-piece chamber groups, to full throated 17-piece big bands, to 20+ piece jazz orchestras with strings, The Arthur Street Loft Orchestra is a unique and dynamic series of concerts, and the only thing to be doing on a Monday night in Wellington!
