The Virtuoso Strings Youth Orchestra is coming to Auckland, and we want to celebrate New Zealand’s finest talent with you. Join us, and the artists below, for a fun evening for the whole family.
Ria Hall is an exciting voice on the contemporary New Zealand music landscape. Creatively informed by West Coast hip-hop, vintage reggae, classic soul, dancehall ragga and modern beat music, she presents a fresh and vibrant perspective as both a young Māori woman, and as a cutting edge, 21st-century singer and artist.
Lisa is a professional singer with over 20 years’ experience in the music industry working with the likes of Fly My Pretties, Hollie Smith, Shapeshifter, Fat Freddie's Drop, Sola Rosa and Rhombus.
Wini Baxter is a professional vocalist who has worked with a range of artists and bands, notably The Pink Floyd Experience, as well as Iva Lankum, Hollie Smith, Sasha V, Rosita Vai, Bella Kalolo and TJ Taotua.
Somewhere between Gypsy and Jazz with a strong swing feel, the band will perform with string bass, lead and rhythm guitars, accordion and gypsy violin!
Virtuoso Strings Youth Orchestra will also be performing a mixture of classical, pop and rock, and a few familiar film tunes.
All profits from this concert go to the Virtuoso Strings Charitable Trust so they can continue to run their free music programme in East Porirua
