The OCT Ensemble explores different ways of making music - combining art forms, pushing boundaries, and offering ‘out of the box’ musical experiences that interest and excite, and grow our connections across the wider community.
Performances and collaborations have included:
- Nature Inspired evoking our place with nature-inspired music and poetry
- A collaboration with the University of Waikato, performing new works by emerging composers
- He Pu, He Puoro, He Purakau – a seed, an instrument, a story, combining the world of taonga puoro with the traditions of the orchestra, featuring Horomona Horo and Jeremy Mayall
