A national centre of musical excellence
A creative quarter with musical excellence and public engagement at its heart will be developed in Wellington’s Te Ngākau Civic Precinct. Join us in creating 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 across a suite of facilites in the Te Ngākau precinct, occupying space in the new architectural landmark being developed by Willis Bond at 110 Jervois Quay and the refurbished Wellington Town Hall. As a shared home for the University’s New Zealand School of Music—Te Kōkī and the NZSO, it will encompass performance, education, research, recording, broadcasting, and technology spaces. The centre will be ideally placed to engage with the people of Wellington and New Zealand.
