Classical music

Chamber music group Trio Pohádka & Friends presents the fifth instalment of their cancer research benefit concert; this time in the Auckland Town Hall, a city’s premium concert venue. All proceeds from the concert will be donated to the Cancer Society Auckland/Northland to support life-saving cancer research.

Trio Pohádka & Friends consists of doctors and musicians connected by a mission to spread gems of chamber music to all audiences, help fight cancer and educate audiences about the advances made in cancer research.  The Trio’s philanthropic mission, unique repertoire and boundless enthusiasm have already won hearts of many New Zealanders. The group has raised close to $15,000 for Cancer Society Auckland/Northland, including the sales of their favourably reviewed CD By Heart And Soul
