Music and Memory

Music and Memory is about connecting. It brings together strands from Māori and Pakeha music and craft traditions, from our shared and turbulent colonial history, as we take part in a musical pilgrimage back to the history of the North Island Main Trunk Line. Together we will enjoy, sing, learn about our separate cultures and our present directions, as we walk back to the future. And build anew.

In our concerts, we combine two ancient, pre-colonial traditions of music. Viols and Taonga Pūoro together weaving beautiful sounds, harmony and musical invention with immediate appeal. Taonga Pūoro express in a pure way the relationship of humans to each other and to this unique landscape. A consort of viols weaves lines of melody and harmony, clear in each part. The music connects the times of Shakespeare and pre- colonial Aotearoa with our present. Composers include 21st Century New Zealanders Dame Gillian Whitehead and Ross Harris with 17th Century English composers Orlando Gibbons, William Byrd, & Anthony Holborne.

Admission is free, but space is limited. Booking is ESSENTIAL.
