As we mark the 5th anniversary of the Christchurch Mosque Attacks, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra Te Tira Pūoro o Aotearoa presents a unique musical collaboration.

Conducted by Fawzi Haimor, featuring powerful Moroccan vocalist Oum, and oud virtuoso Kyriakos Tapakis, the NZSO performs works from Valerie Coleman, Reza Val, Arvo Pärt and the world premiere of a new work from acclaimed New Zealand composer John Psathas, ONZM.

Psathas’ Ahlan wa Sahlan, composed in collaboration with Oum and Tapakis, uses the Arabic welcome greeting to let people know they are in a place where they belong.

Beyond Words is a symphonic expression of solidarity and peace performed as a prelude to Unity Week.

This work has been created with guidance from The Central Iqra Trust and Muslim communities from across Aotearoa New Zealand.

There is a pre-show Artist Q&A, 6.30pm, Renouf Foyer.

Education offer for groups of 6+

$10 Student & $20 Teacher tickets
