Please note Baroque Discovery has been booked out.

Join us for a free concert including Bach’s Air on a G String and Pachelbel’s Canon as well as works by Mozart, Corelli and Boyce. Come and find out more about our instruments and how and why we play them the way we do.

Get up close and personal with NZ Barok. This one-hour free concert will showcase our instruments, the special colours they make, and the beautiful music they create. The concert will be followed by a chance to talk to the musicians themselves and take a closer look at their instruments.

Who are we? We’re a group of musicians who are absolutely passionate about performing baroque and classical music. But we don’t stop there! Our mission is to deliver lively and excellent performances using the instruments and playing styles audiences of the 18th Century would have expected. We don’t wear the wigs, but our playing will transport you back in time! Be touched by the resonant, deep and expressive sounds of our instruments. Invite your family and friends for a not-to-be-missed afternoon of baroque and classical delights!

Kindly sponsored by Auckland Council.
