Music in Wellington

Home to major music institutions like the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Wellington's calendar of good times is filled with a range of concerts to please the ears of all music-lovers.

New Zealand Symphony Orchestra

The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra's home base is right here in Wellington. With a reputation for artistic excellence, the NZSO attracts many of the world’s leading conductors and soloists to perform with them each year. We reckon they’re one of the coolest orchestras around, because they believe that the power and emotion of orchestral music is for everyone. 

Orchestra Wellington

Wellington is lucky to be home to  New Zealand’s oldest regional orchestra which was founded over sixty years ago. With progressive programmes and accessible pricing, Orchestra Wellington's annual seasons have something for everyone to enjoy. 

Chamber Music New Zealand

Chamber Music New Zealand (CMNZ) is the largest presenter of top quality chamber music concerts throughout New Zealand. Every year, they bring together international performers with local musicians and composers to present a season filled with everything from period-instrument performances to jazz collaborations, string quartets to wind ensembles, cross-genre to cross-art form explorations.

Michael Fowler Centre

Award-winning architecture and world-class acoustics make the Michael Fowler Centre a venue of choice for most of our musical extravaganzas. Take a browse of our upcoming concerts at the MFC and get ready to feel bathed in glorious sound.
