As one of NZ’s most celebrated soloists and chamber musicians, Michael Houstoun needs no introduction to the public. This concert, however, is the last time we will hear Michael in Whanganui –one of his final concerts, and a grand end to our 2020 series!

Earlier last year Michael posted ”After almost 50 years as a professional musician I have decided to retire, hang up my fingers, call it quits and begin a new phase of my fortunate life.”

His programme includes Beethoven’s mighty “Waldstein” Sonata, Debussy Images Book1, Chopin’s Sonata in B min and Bach-Busoni Chaconne. Don't miss this opportunity to hear one of NZ's musical heroes for the last time.
