The sweet sound of strings, the gentle timbre of timpani and the trumpeting of woodwinds is about to meld with the brazen birdsong of gannet colonists at Auckland’s Muriwai Beach.

The Auckland Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Peter Thomas is joining with the Surf Club at Muriwai to present a fundraising event of Tunes in the Dunes on Saturday, 7 March.

Collaborating with the orchestra to present an evening of family friendly classics and contemporary music will be the popular singer/songwriter Jason Kerrison of Op Shop and New Zealand’s Got Talent fame as well as the internationally acclaimed Muriwai artist in residence Moana Maniapoto from Moana and the Tribe.

Organisers hope that Tunes in the Dunes will become a popular annual family event along the lines of Concert in the Park and the longstanding Music at Mission Estate.

Funds raised from the ticketed event will go towards support of the orchestra and the completion of the award winning The Surf Club at Muriwai which has become a significant hub for myriad community groups who are flocking to use its world-class facilities. The Club is home base for Muriwai Volunteer Lifeguard Service which does an outstanding job keeping beachgoers safe on the beach and in the water.

This is a family friendly event...food and beverages will be available on site but bring a picnic. No BYO alcohol or pets please.

Rain date - Sunday 8th March 5pm - 8pm

Parking - Head towards the beach and Patrol Tower car park and follow the signs. 200 metre walk to concert site. Please indicate to carparking attendants in Surflifesaving uniforms should you require disabled carparking and assistance.
