Event Details

This gorgeous, rejuvenating evening of eight world premieres celebrates the vital conservation work of Forest & Bird, reminding us all of the precious beauty of our whenua, moana, flora and fauna.

Founded in 1923 by war veteran Ernest ‘Val’ Sanderson after a campaign to restore Kāpiti Island and honour its status as a nature reserve, Forest & Bird has played a crucial role in preserving New Zealand’s wildlife and wild places.

Collaborating in concert to salute the mahi of its members and supporters, composers and performers including NZTrio, Peter Scholes, Bridget Douglas, Rob Thorne and Yoshiko Tsuruta bring their command of acoustic chamber instruments to the fore.

Featuring atmospheric visual design capturing unique environments and native species, both on land and in the sea, this stirring one-off performance is inspired by – and aspires to the future of – the Aotearoa way of life.
