Champion a decade of Sistema Aotearoa unleashing the potential of tamariki, whānau and the Ōtara community through orchestral music.

Celebrating Māori and Pasifika culture through the orchestra, Tekau! features 250 young musicians across a 100-piece string orchestra and choir of 150, in a repertoire full of Sistema Aotearoa favourites including ‘Poi E’, ‘Pasifika Medley’ and ‘Maranga Rā’.

A new commission from Rob Ruha to mark the organisation’s 10th birthday will sit at the heart of the show, alongside special guest performances.

Don’t miss this joyous occasion of music as these talented tamariki make their debut on the grand Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre stage.
