Celebrate 400 - Paekākāriki concert

December 2019

400 years ago – before the birth of Bach, Vivaldi, or Handel – renowned instrument-maker Nicolò Amati crafted an exquisite viola in his Italian workshop. Is this the oldest string instrument in New Zealand? We believe so! Bring the whole family to experience history in action with the NZSQ’s programme of works by Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Vieuxtemps, and New Zealand composers Jack Body and Salina Fisher. Then, after the concert, join us for tea and cake to celebrate this unique occasion.
