All Ages

Spend a relaxed Sunday afternoon with the New Zealand String Quartet – Te Rōpū Tūrū O Aotearoa (NZSQ) at NZSQ Encounters. This series of free chamber music concerts is coming to a community hall near you this November. If you've never been to a chamber music concert before, this is your chance to experience the magic and wonder of classical music in a whole new way.

Chamber music is a genre of classical music characterized by its intimate setting and smaller groups of performers. The most common chamber music group is a string quartet, made up of two violins, one viola and one cello. Unlike a large orchestra, chamber music and string quartets allow for a deep connection between the performers and audiences.

The New Zealand String Quartet is working with Vogelmorn Hall, Strathmore Park Community Centre, and Newtown Community and Cultural Centre to create a relaxed and welcoming space for audiences of all ages to explore classical music. Learn about centuries-old instruments, discover music from the past and present, including music from young New Zealand composers, and ask questions about the life of a classical musician. Relaxed, lounge-style seating will be available, along with light refreshments.

NZSQ strives to be a quartet for all New Zealanders and wants to make high-quality classical music accessible and enjoyable for all. Admission to NZSQ Encounters is completely free and open to any age; audiences can simply show up on the day. Should any audience member wish to support the NZSQ’s mission of bringing music to all New Zealanders, donations are warmly welcomed.

If you've never been to a chamber music concert before, or want to introduce the art form to your whānau and friends, NZSQ Encounters is the perfect place to start. Get up close and personal with the NZSQ this November, and delve into the magical world of chamber music.
