We're thrilled to announce the much anticipated launch of our 2015 Festival Programme!

Join us for 10 days of wonderful music making with international artists Kathryn Stott(England-), the Ying Quartet (USA), The Song Company(Australia) and David Griffiths (Australia) as well as some of New Zealand's leading chamber musicians including our very own New Zealand String Quartet.

Through dynamic and exciting collaborations, we'll present rare and beautiful works in our wonderful concert venues.

Included will be a mini Piano Festival showcasing not only four of New Zealand's leading pianists, but also US based New Zealander Nicola Melville and our special English guest Kathryn Stott.
