Come and join us for the 13th International Akaroa Music Festival in beautiful Akaroa. For the 2020 edition, we have created an exciting programme, featuring NZ’s most accomplished musicians as well as fabulous international guest artists.

Cellist Ramon Jaffe and German pianist Michael Endres will be back this year, and America violinist Curt Thompson, Polish violinist Agnieszka Kulowska, Latvian harpsichord player Aina Kalnciema and many more join us for the first time.

On the musical menu, we have Enescu’s Romanian Rhapsody, Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony arranged by Hummel, and, due to popular demand, another Cellissimo evening.

Following on from last year’s success, we will continue to feature stellar young talent in our ‘Rising Stars’ series along the Student’s lunchtime concert series. The students will present themselves in our lunchtime concert series in the Powerhouse. Do come and see what they are up to.
