After a turbulent time of uncertainty for the performing arts in New Zealand, and the unfortunate closure of Q Theatre for the time being, NZTrio have finally managed to secure a new venue. They invite audiences to join them in the Concert Chamber at Auckland Town Hall for Origins a programme including Beethoven, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Sarah Ballard (NZ), and Isang Yun (Korea) on Sunday 5th July at 5pm.
Let the journey between home and the cosmos begin again! NZTrio’s 2020 concert series offers an inspiring exploration of ancestry, diversity and heritage. Each concert begins with a powerful masterwork from Beethoven in a toast to his enduring influence on European music, before swerving off into more exotic realms and a kaleidoscope of geographical, cultural and religious influences.
In addition to forthcoming live performances, NZTrio is currently running a Boosted campaign for their debut album. They are a third of the way through but all further contributions gratefully received - HERE
