Starbucks Music In Parks Inaugural Concert
Sunday December 2nd at St Heliers:
the Auckland Brass Quintet – free entry

The first Starbucks Music In Parks concert kicks off with music from Auckland Philharmonia players who make up the ensemble Auckland Brass Quintet.

Second in the line-up for the series is the first Dancing in the Streets concert on Friday December 7 in Beresford Square, Uptown Auckland, featuring the House of Downtown, Roger Perry and DJ Angel.

Starbucks Music In Parks is provided by Auckland City and the 50 free music concerts run from the start of December 2001 right through until the end of March 2002. They feature a diverse cross section of music ranging in style from traditional classical string quartets to alternative drum & bass. Many of the musicians are local artists who write and play original Kiwi music and all the music is played in the wonderful open spaces and parks of Auckland City.

- Jazz at the Auckland Domain Band Rotunda
