Celebrate 400

Wellington & Paekakariki     /     November - December

400 years ago – before the birth of Bach, Vivaldi, or Handel – the renowned instrument-maker Nicolò Amati crafted an exquisite viola in his Italian workshop. Is this marvellous Amati viola now the oldest string instrument in New Zealand? We believe so!

Cello for Africa

Cello for Africa, directed by Sinfonia for Hope, brings together musicians from Africa and New Zealand in a concert to raise funds for the Tamariki Education Centre, a primary school in the slums of Nairobi, founded by New Zealander, Denise Carnihan.
