Pupils from two Hawkes Bay schools – Kowhai Special School and Hohepa School – will join forces with New Zealand String Quartet and clarinettist James Campbell on Friday 16 May to perform a special mixed-ability event in Hawkes Bay Opera House in Hastings.
Led by Wellington community musician Julian Raphael, the public performance is the culmination of a series of workshops held at the two schools.
The aim of the performance is to enable the young participants and audience members to experience live music up close, interact with the musicians and their instruments, and appreciate classical music in a welcoming environment.
Chamber Music New Zealand Audience Development Manager Victoria Dadd says: “We believe that all New Zealanders deserve the opportunity to experience live music and we hope this project will stimulate everyone who has been participating and help them develop a life-long love of music.”
Richard Benge, Executive Director, Arts Access Aotearoa applauds Chamber Music New Zealand’s commitment to providing access to music for young people with learning disability.
“It’s fantastic to see leading musicians sharing their skills and love of music in these relaxed performances,” he says. “A lot of planning and work is involved in ensuring the workshops and performances are a success. My congratulations to everyone who is a part of this project.”
