Drawn from musicians of New Zealand School of Music, Orchestra Wellington and New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Sinfonia for Hope join Grammy Award Winning Bass Baritone Jonathan Lemalu for a very special afternoon of vibrant and moving music.
Presented alongside Porirua’s own Virtuoso Strings, winners of the People’s Choice Award at the NZCT Chamber Music 2019 Nationals.
Join us in support of the important work of leaders who ensure accessibility of the arts and creativity, and the growth of our country’s top talent.

The first half of the concert features five pieces written specifically for the VSO by co-founder Craig Utting (two of them brand-new in 2020).
In the second half, Jonathan features in a number of other arias, some with the help of Donald Maurice's "Sinfonia for Hope" orchestra. The concert concludes with Danzón no. 2 by Arturo Márquez, in an arrangement for double string orchestra.
