Orchestra Wellington will join singers Ben Patterson, Pasquale Orchard, Lisa Tomlins and Declan Cudd (Hutt Valley) & conducted by Brent Stewart (Hutt Valley).
The evening will also feature our good friends Arohanui Strings - Sistema Hutt Valley, performing side by side with musicians from Orchestra Wellington.
Arohanui Strings is a groundbreaking programme based in the Hutt Valley, which creates social change through music, providing free violins and music lessons for children in underprivileged communities in Taita, Naenae and Pomare.
We will be performing the world premiere of Infinity Mirror, a new work by Wellington composer Simon Eastwood, which he has written specially for Orchestra Wellington and Arohanui Strings. The work was selected as the first ever SOUNZ Commission for Emerging Players, a new collaboration of SOUNZ Centre for New Zealand Music and Orchestra Wellington.
