Next week, I’m thrilled to have two premieres coming up.
On Wednesday 17 May, Nathaniel Otley and Tom McGraw are presenting the New Zealand premiere of Pariwhero, for violin and piano, in Ōtepoti. The concert is in Marama Hall, at the University of Otage, at 1pm.
Then, on Friday in Te Whanganui-a-Tara, there is a concert by bassoonist Dr. Jacqueline Wilson. She will be presenting an ongoing project of commissioning and collaboration with indigenous composers in the United States (including herself). I’ve really enjoyed working together, as she expands the project into an international kōrero. Jacqui will play the premiere of our new piece The Habits of Leaves, and I’m really looking forward to hearing it.
The concert is in the Adam Concert Room, at Te Herenga Waka Victoria University, at 12:10pm.
Neither university has especially detailed events pages, but here are Facebook events for both concerts:
