The weaving of music, spoken word and projected imagery creates a compelling concert experience evoking art of people and places. Join the dynamic new reed quintet Ensemble Aaru and OCT Ensemble for an immersive evening of storytelling and music.

A beautifully crafted programme of chamber music awaits within the intimate surrounds of Te Whare Tāpere Iti. 

If you enjoyed the immersive Our World experience in 2023, you’ll love Of People and Places – the second concert in our experimental chamber series.
