This gorgeous, rejuvenating performance of Aotearoa New Zealand chamber music, presented with dynamic visual effects, celebrates the vital conservation work of Forest & Bird, reminding us all of the precious beauty of our whenua, moana, flora and fauna.

The concert features some of Aotearoa’s most accomplished musicians - the NZ Trio (Somi Kim - piano, Ashley Brown - cello, Amalia Hall - violin) performing with Rob Thorne - Taonga Pūoro, Peter Scholes - clarinet, Bridget Douglas - flute and Yoshiko Tsuruta - percussion.

The innovative and stunning music has been written by leading composers and is presented in concert with the support of atmospheric visual design by David Eversfield from Optic Shock, capturing unique environments and native species, both on land and in the sea.

“[A] landmark concert demonstrating the abilities of our contemporary composers.” – NZ Arts Review
