Submerge yourself in this sumptuous journey through French passion, vibrant city nightlife, and the colourful spectrum of jazz. Inspired by the infamous nineteenth-century French nightclub, Le Chat Noir, this concert is a whirlwind of bold sounds and beautiful melodies. Kenji Bunch's rhythmic Groovebox captures the essence of New York City between dusk & dawn. You'll then find yourself in bohemian Paris listening to the music of then Paris-based New Zealander Reuben Jelleyman, before finishing with the Brazilian flair of Raimundo Penaforte. Described as a “national treasure” and “New Zealand’s most indispensable ensemble” (William Dart, NZ Herald), NZTrio is renowned for its eclectic repertoire, outstanding talent and warm kiwi stage presence. Any preconceptions of classical music being stuffy or intimidating are smashed by edgy repertoire, venue ambiance, and post-concert manaakitanga. Bringing together three incredibly accomplished artists: Amalia Hall (violin), Ashley Brown (cello) and Somi Kim (piano), every NZTrio performance powerfully reaffirms the importance and cathartic nature of a live musical experience in today’s digital world. Expect to be affected.
