A Woman’s Place

With 125 years having passed since women in New Zealand got the right to vote, the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra is celebrating with their show A Woman’s Place. In association with Auckland Museum, the orchestra will perform an all-female programme of music conducted by Tianyi Lu, including a performance from New Zealand musician Tiny Ruins with works from historic and contemporary female composers.

Taking place at the Auckland Town Hall on November 29, this celebration of women is one not to be missed.
