Presented by: Opus Orchestra

The second of an exciting pair of short interactive concerts, Opus Orchestra is joined by composers and outstanding soloists.

Made for Opus: Composer Encounters is an early-evening programme of superb NZ works commissioned or arranged especially for Opus. Audience members have a rare chance to interact with some of New Zealand’s most respected composers and the Opus musicians. Each composer will introduce their work, then, following the performances, the audience is invited to stay on for a Q&A session.

The programme includes Ross Harris’ Three Pieces for Orchestra, each inspired by a European composer including Mahler, Wagner and Schumann. Martin Lodge’s Pan Dreaming will feature principal Opus flautist Agnes Harmath. Finally, Gareth Farr’s Marimba Concerto – written for Opus in 2019 – will be performed with Tauranga virtuoso Yoshiko Tsuruta on marimba.

Bring all those questions you have always pondered and ask the composers and performers themselves over a drink.
