Want to hear more of this? From the charm of Bridge, to the cacophony of Ives and the devastation of Shostakovich, contrasting with the nobility of Elgar, sounds of Holloway and the intrigue of Bray - come along to either tonight's performance at 7pm at Mairangi Arts Centre, or 6pm on Sunday December 15 at Auckland Art Gallery ☀️
