Arts on Tour New Zealand Hits South Taranaki

Arts on Tour New Zealand Hits South Taranaki with Hopetoun Brown

Tickets are now on sale for the first AOTNZ shows to visit South Taranaki this year - in Oaonui (28 April) and Ohawe (29 April).

2017 Taite Prize finalists Hopetoun Brown will be joined on stage by arguably the country’s finest trumpet player, Finn Scholes.

Event Co-ordinator, Jody Bloor, says the fiery trio will play songs from across the Hopetoun Brown cannon; including their brand new long-player ‘Don't Let Them Lock You Up’.

“This edgy show will take us on a fun-filled journey covering blues, soul, funk, jazz, Americana, and stomp as the performers swap trumpets, saxophones, bass clarinets, tubas, trombones and an assortment of strange keyboard instruments,” says Jody.

Jody says the South Taranaki District Council (STDC) together with funding from the TSB Community Trust is bringing a number of AOTNZ shows to South Taranaki between April and November. Towns that will host the shows include Ohawe, Oaonui, Rawhitiroa, Kakaramea, Pihama, Opunake and Hawera.

“In previous years we have generally had just one show in South Taranaki, but this year, thanks to funding from TSB Community Trust, we’ve been able to take more shows to the rural community at a discounted price,” she says.

Tickets for the Oaonui and Ohawe shows can be purchased through Opunake LibraryPlus and the South Taranaki i-SITE.
