Wellington- The Echo of the Stars- Te oro o Ngā Whetū
As part of the Matariki celebrations 2017 there will be a special event held at Wellington Museum on the 16th of June and then again at Pātaka Art and Museum in Porirua on the 17th of June. The event will showcase elements of Māori music, chamber music and poetry. There is no booking for these performances and entry is by koha.
For the Wellington Museum performances:
Session 1 is from 6pm -7pm.
Session 2 is from 8pm to 9pm.
The performance description is as follows:
Shut your eyes and open your ears as the cultures of Aotearoa intertwine.
Cultures will meld in a beautiful sound infusion as we join internationally acclaimed New Zealand String Quartet, ngā taonga puoro artist Alistair Fraser, Te Reo Māori performer and composer Ariana Tikao, and students from Virtuoso Strings Orchestra, Porirua, for this uplifting performance.
This will be a sensory feast that re-affirms our place in the universe.
