Sensing Music


Sensing Music 2021 offers musical experiences for all ages and tastes, from nature-inspired music and poetry in the warm acoustic of Te Whare Tapere Iti at the Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts, to a dusting off of those rusty instruments in the relaxed environment of the Rusty Player Orchestra, to a family-friendly performance of “The Time-Travelling Conductor”.


In August 2017, Orchestras Central presented  ‘Sensing Music’ –  a weekend of orchestral music that celebrated the breadth of talent in our community, and gave audiences the chance to enjoy performances in new, exciting and sometimes challenging ways.
Orchestral music can engage all the senses and this ‘feast’ encouraged existing music lovers,  and those new or curious,  to come an experience Orchestral music in fresh exciting ways. There was also plenty of opportunity for musicians of all ‘ages and stages’ to get involved as participants.
