A national centre of musical excellence
A creative quarter with musical excellence and public engagement at its heart will be developed in Wellingtoncreating a national treasure in New Zealand's capital city.
A vision is taking shape for a vibrant and innovative music centre that will support greater access to music and the arts for all. This will be a unique collaboration between Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington, Te Tira Pūoro o Aotearoa—New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (NZSO), and the Wellington City Council.
The new centre will be based in and around the refurbished Wellington Town Hall, which will offer a vibrant community facility ideally placed to engage with the people of Wellington and New Zealand. It will be a national space for musical innovation and collaboration and will be the only facility in New Zealand with world-class acoustics and state-of-the-art orchestral sound recording facilities.
