As part of Te Papa's Art After Dark : Toi o te Po programme, this concert is the conclusion to an evening centred around their current 'Rita Angus' exhibition.
There was a very strong connection between Douglas Lilburn and Rita Angus, revealed in "Philip Norman's award winning biography of the composer":/resources/show/288 and further documented in the recently published "biography of the painter":/resources/show/550 by Jill Trevelyan .
