2023 marks the 22nd season of the New Zealand String Quartet's annual National Tour, our flagship series which sees us traverse the breadth and depth of Aotearoa. Each year we perform a series of carefully curated programmes meditating on a central theme. These programmes are composed of a heady mix of classical favourites and edgy contemporary works, and all include pieces by New Zealand composers. Our National Tour is proudly supported by our Principal Sponsor, The Turnovsky Endowment Trust, and Creative New Zealand.
