The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra will be performing on Friday 26 June for a live audience. The orchestra will present a concert, titled Ngū Kīoro… Harikoa Ake – celebrating togetherness, and the audience at Wellington’s Michael Fowler Centre will be over 2,000 people, and they are not required to wear masks or maintain social distancing.

Ngū Kīoro… Harikoa Ake celebrates the enormous effort New Zealanders made to protect the vulnerable and eliminate COVID-19.

Tenor Simon O’Neill and soprano Eliza Boom join the Orchestra for an evening of classics from Bizet’s Carmen, Puccini’s La Bohème, Verdi’s Otello and music from NZ composers.

The concert is sold out, but one can enjoy Ngū Kīoro… Harikoa Ake via a livestream at
