St. Luke’s Church, 130 Remuera Road, Remuera, Auckland

Join us for a free concert including Bach’s Air on a G string and Pachelbel’s Canon as well as works by Mozart, Corelli and Boyce. Come and find out more about our instruments and how and why we play them the way we do.  Get up close and personal with NZ Barok. This one hour free concert will showcase our instruments, the special colours they make, and the beautiful music they create. The concert will be followed by a chance to talk to the musicians themselves and take a closer look at their instruments.
