The development of this creative quarter is one of those rare opportunities that can inspire a community to create something magnificent.
Led by former Wellington Mayor Kerry Prendergast CNZM, the Fundraising Chair, and Donald Best, Chair of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Victoria University of Wellington and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra have committed to raising $30 million. This fundraising initiative will create a bespoke space for the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Victoria University of Wellington’s New Zealand School of Music in the Town Hall and adjoining buildings. Wellington City Council has committed to funding the seismic strengthening of the Wellington Town Hall.
We have secured a significant leadership gift towards our joint fundraising goal and seek support from partners who share our vision for a world-class national music centre in Wellington.
