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.

CMNZ Presents: Imani Winds

Imani Winds (26 Sep 2017) combines European, American, African, and Latin American musical traditions to create a unique, flamboyant and entertaining programme. Works from Rimsky-Korsakov, Piazzolla and Ravel are performed alongside new works and pieces from Latin composers.

Kátya Kabanová

A brilliant showcase of singing actors, orchestral colour and heartbreaking emotions, the powerfully emotional tragedy, Kátya Kabanová (7-14 Oct 2017) weaves a dreamlike, visceral story of isolation and oppression. Conducted by New Zealand Opera's Director of Music, Wyn Davies, it is directed by Patrick Nolan, whose past productions include the unforgettable Eugene Onegin and La bohème.

Orchestra Wellington - Rite of Spring

Orchestra Wellington perform Beethoven's epoch-defining Symphony No. 3 - In E- At Major (Eroica), which was so shocking to its original audiences that it caused riots, and Stravinsky's Rite of Spring.

New Zealand Symphony Orchestra

The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra's home base is right here in Wellington. We reckon they’re one of the coolest orchestras around, because they believe that the power and emotion of orchestral music is for everyone. Be transported by romance, drama and tragedy with their 2016 season.
