The NZSO joins with Royal New Zealand Plunket Society in celebrating their hundredth anniversary. Plunket commissioned Bill Manhire to write the poem These Arms to Hold You and Eve de Castro-Robinson to compose the music for children’s voices and orchestra. This exciting new work will be sung by the children’s choir Lyrica.
