NZ Pops Orchestra Will Follow Your Heart

In a first for New Zealand, a dedicated pops orchestra is launching this year, and will present a stellar line-up at its premiere performance in March, ‘Follow Your Heart’. The New Zealand Pops Orchestra (NZPO) brings a unique fusion of popular contemporary music and mixes it with classical sounds.

‘Follow Your Heart’ is designed to lift the spirits of audience members and offer a platform for emerging Kiwi talent.

Co-star of ‘Follow Your Heart,’ and successful Kiwi crossover tenor Will Martin, says he is excited to be involved with the launch of the NZPO and that such an orchestra could have helped him achieve success sooner. “The formation of the NZ Pops Orchestra is the stuff of dreams for me . . . an opportunity to perform classical, crossover, and contemporary repertoire, all within the same performance, and all on New Zealand stages for New Zealand audiences.
