In THE STORY 2024 season, Orchestra Wellington will share a glimpse of the journey of orchestral music from the Baroque era to the music of today. It is the richest possible theme for a season, but as you would expect, we are going to have a bit of fun with it! 

The Story has a strong narrative thread, and while we can only provide a glimpse of the story that has defined this art for over 1000 years, in 2024 we focus on masterpieces that look back to previous eras for inspiration. Each season, Orchestra Wellington follows aspects of Western Art music’s development. In 2023 we linked CPE Bach’s sensitive style through to the Expressionists of early Modernism. For The Story, we’ll further nuance, bringing in the French Impressionists, NeoClassicists, Jazz Cats and more!

In a season that features two extraordinary women composers of the modern era, we are delighted to announce a brilliant post-modern artist, our newest composer-in-residence, Eve de Castro-Robinson! Eve is one of New Zealand’s senior composers, and her music draws deeply from our shared contemporary experience!

Our soloists and musical partners for the season include some of Aotearoa’s very best musicians including Orchestra Wellington concertmaster and NZTrio violinist Amalia Hall, New Zealand String Quartet violinist Monique Lapins and the brilliant pianist Somi Kim of NZTrio. We also welcome back our closest musical friends, Orpheus Choir of Wellington for Beethoven’s magnificent Symphony No. 9 in D Minor and Britten’s War Requiem.

So, there you have it! We present The Story of Music, seen through a very particular lens that allows us to present you, NZ’s largest audience, with an exciting and thought-provoking season that spans across 286 years of genius from 1738 up to 2024!
