The conference responds to the suppression of music during World War II through 20 sessions of presentations and performances, a collaboration between Te Kōkī New Zealand School of Music and the History and German Programmes of Victoria University of Wellington.
Over the four conference days there will be keynote addresses from international authors Michael Haas and Tanya Tintner and composer Laurence Sherr, four panel presentation sessions from academics including guest speakers and performers from Belgium, Israel, and Australia as well as New Zealand, full performances of a Children's opera as well as opera excerpts, two orchestra concerts, nine chamber music concerts, and a film screening. Performers include professional performance staff from NZSM, including the New Zealand String Quartet, and NZSO players as well as students and alumni.
Just three degrees from Villa-Lobos
30 Jul 2014 There is a theory that there is no more than six degrees of separation between any two people on earth. Next Wednesday however, the audience will have just three degrees of separation between themselves and Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos when soloist Inbal Megiddo performs his Cello Concerto.
