Join us for an exciting opportunity to get up close and personal with some of Aotearoa's finest classical musicians. The New Zealand String Quartet - Te Rōpū Tūrū O Aotearoa - is visiting Te Tūhunga Rau in Strathmore Park on Sunday 12 November at 3pm with NZSQ Encounters: a free, whānau-friendly performance of music you may never have heard before. Learn about centuries-old instruments, and discover music from the past and present, including music by young New Zealand composers. This is a relaxed concert of 60mins for all the whānau to enjoy. See you there!
The New Zealand String Quartet is a charitable trust and we can't do what we do without the generous support of our donors. Please consider making a donation on the day of the concert to help us reach more communities like yours. Or, donate online here.
Chamber music is a genre of classical music characterized by its intimate setting and smaller groups of performers. The most common chamber music group is a string quartet, made up of two violins, one viola and one cello. Unlike a large orchestra, chamber music and string quartets allow for a deep connection between the performers and audiences.
The New Zealand String Quartet is working with Vogelmorn Hall, Strathmore Park Community Centre, and Newtown Community and Cultural Centre to create a relaxed and welcoming space for audiences of all ages to explore classical music. Learn about centuries-old instruments, discover music from the past and present, including music from young New Zealand composers, and ask questions about the life of a classical musician. Relaxed, lounge-style seating will be available, along with light refreshments.
If you've never been to a chamber music concert before, or want to introduce the art form to your whānau and friends, NZSQ Encounters is the perfect place to start. Get up close and personal with the NZSQ this November, and delve into the magical world of chamber music.
