Event Details

To experience top-notch classical musicianship – minus the formalities – catch our performance of The Americas live at Te Uru Waitākere Contemporary Gallery on Sunday March 31st as part of the Titirangi Festival of Music.

Ashley welcomes back Andrew Beer (violin) and Stephen De Pledge (piano) for a ripper of a programme with elements of New York nightlife, the wild west, jazzy blues, plus a liberal dose of spice from south o’ the border. It’s classical music, but it’s wearing boots to the party so dress casual, bring a compadre, and enjoy the ride.

Music by Kenji Bunch, Paul Schoenfield, Gunther Schuller, Raimundo Penaforte, Astor Piazzolla and New Zealand’s own Claire Cowan and Jack Body. Set amongst Gavin Hipkins’ The Homely II exhibition of photographic works, this is an Art3 (art to the power of 3) experience, bringing powerful sound elements to themes that explore place and time. Those of you who loved Exotica will not want to miss The Americas! Places are limited.

Complimentary wine and nibbles with the musicians following the performance.

Concert duration approximately 80 mins., no interval.
