In 2021 we will celebrate the end of our 20th anniversary season with a concert featuring some of our favourite music and composers, including a repeat performance of Stroma's original commission from Jenny McLeod, entitled 'Cat Dreams', in honour of her 80th birthday. Also hear NZ premieres of works by Salina Fisher and Michael Norris, two favourites from Saariaho and Berio, and a guest appearance by Wellington taonga puoro legend Al Fraser in his luminous collaboration with composer Simon Eastwood.
