Te Oro o ngā Whetū: The Echo of the Stars

Wellington Museum and Chamber Music New Zealand are joining forces this Matariki, to present family concerts that weave the hauntingly beautiful music of taonga puoro and traditional chamber music instruments in a unique homage to Matariki.

Cultures will meld in a beautiful sound fusion as we join internationally acclaimed New Zealand String Quartet, ngā taonga puoro artist Alistair Fraser, Te Reo Māori performer and composer Ariana Tikao, and students from Virtuoso Strings Orchestra, Porirua, for this uplifting performance.

Shut your eyes and open your ears as the music of Aotearoa’s cultures intertwine. This will be a sensory feast that re-affirms our place in the universe.
