Adult $40, Child $10


Thu 05 September, 19:00-21:30


The Jam Factory, The Historic Village, 17th Avenue, Tauranga

The New Zealand String Quartet bring a programme of fresh and familiar classical works to the Jam Factory. As part of their 2024 season, Soundscapes, the NZSQ is taking chamber music outside of the traditional concert hall to explore the way music connects us with our surroundings.

From eco-sanctuaries to art galleries, to cozy and eclectic music venues, imaginative programmes collide headfirst with unique spaces creating epic, multi-sensory experiences.

Concert Programme

  • Haydn - String Quartet No. 3, Op. 71 in E flat major
  • Janácek - String Quartet No. 1 The Kreutzer Sonata
  • Leonie Holmes - Fragment II Shostakovich - String Quartet No. 2, A major, Op. 68

The New Zealand String Quartet recently welcomed a wonderful new musician to the ensemble, violinist Peter Clark. This concert is one of his first performing with the Quartet as second violinist. Come along to give Peter a big NZSQ welcome!

Whether you're a classical music fan or looking to try something new this concert is not to be missed. No Need to be an Expert: The concert programme, crafted in the NZSQ’s signature style, aims to engage audiences of all levels of familiarity with chamber music. Each piece of music is preceded by a lively and informative introduction delivered by the Quartet members themselves. These introductions seek to shed light on the stories behind the music, making it an enriching experience suitable for all audiences.
