This gorgeous, rejuvenating evening of eight world premieres celebrates the vital conservation work of Forest & Bird, reminding us all of the precious beauty of our whenua, moana, flora and fauna.
Since 1923, Forest & Bird has played a crucial role in preserving New Zealand’s wildlife and wild places. Collaborating in concert to salute the mahi, composers and performers including NZTrio (Somi Kim, Ashley Brown, Amalia Hall), Peter Scholes, Kathryn Moorhead, Rob Thorne and Yoshiko Tsuruta bring their command of acoustic chamber instruments to the fore. Featuring atmospheric visual design, this stirring one-off performance is inspired by – and aspires to the future of – the Aotearoa way of life.
Pre-show talk: Composers Peter Scholes, Rob Thorne and Salina Fisherwill give a pre-show talk from 5.30pm - 6pm - 6.30pm in the Concert Chamber
