To mark the 5th anniversary of the Christchurch Mosque attacks, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra presents a unique collaboration promoting unity and peace through music.

Conducted by Fawzi Haimor, and featuring powerful Moroccan vocalist Oum and oud virtuoso Kyriakos Tapakis, the NZSO performs works from Valerie Coleman, Reza Vali, Arvo Pärt, and the world premiere of a new work from acclaimed Aotearoa composer John Psathas, ONZM.

Psathas’ Ahlan wa Sahlan, composed in collaboration with Oum and Tapakis, uses the Arabic welcome greeting to let people know they are in a place where they belong.
Beyond Words is a symphonic expression of solidarity and peace performed as a prelude to Unity Week.

Pre-show exhibition of Arabic calligrapher Janna Ezat’s work: from 12.00pm (Balcony Foyer)

Artist Talk
Pre-show talk with John Psathas, Fawzi Haimor and guest speakers: 2.00pm (Supper Room)

This work has been created with guidance from The Central Iqra Trust and Muslim communities from across Aotearoa.
