Reflection, Regeneration, Release
Join us this June and July for three thoughtfully curated programmes reflecting on our place in this world - meditating on life, loss and rebirth as we mark the first-ever official public holiday dedicated to Matariki, Māori new year.
Familiar favourites by Haydn, Schumann and Mozart are given fresh perspectives, paired beautifully with introspective works by Natalie Hunt, Lyell Cresswell, Grażyna Bacewicz and more.
