NZSO - Matariki in association with the New Zealand Listener



All Ages

‘Kua haehae ngā hihi o Matariki’ - The rays of Matariki shine brightly in a time of darkness to bring us together with hope for the future. As winter begins, we acknowledge Pūanga, heralding the rising of Matariki into the dawn.

Ngā Hihi o Matariki is a significant new work of symphonic proportions by Gareth Farr. To celebrate this Māori new year, join us for this sensational pulse-quickening experience - an opportunity to come together in recognition of a celestial event of uniqueness and beauty.

Matariki is part of the NZSO Festival season. It can be included as part of an add-on to your Podium Series subscription or purchased as part of a Festival package.
