The Radical with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra

For the heaven-storming Ninth, the orchestra alone wasn’t enough: voices were necessary for Beethoven’s ecstatic vision. ‘All men shall become brothers,’ they sing. ‘I embrace you, O you millions – this kiss is for all the world!’

Mahler 3 with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra

What better way to kick off Gemma New’s first full year as NZSO Artistic Advisor and Principal Conductor than with one of the greatest symphonies of all time?

We are saddened by the passing of New Zealand's treasured composer Jenny McLeod. Jenny's passion for choral music has resulted in many of her works being performed by our national choirs. Her music will live on. Here is Voices New Zealand performing 'There's a Time' from Jenny McLeod's song cycle 'Childhood'.

DISCOVER MORE: The making of Follow that Star

At the end of 2021 we launched a brand new Christmas collection of New Zealand Choral Music. In the midst of the pandemic, six New Zealand composers (five are represented here) were commissioned by Voices New Zealand and Artistic Director, Karen Grylls, to reimagine familiar Christmas tunes.

The new works set old tunes, some with the atmosphere of centuries old traditions and some with the stories and traditions from New Zealand.
