Nau mai, haere mai. Welcome to NZ Barok's website.
Comprising leading baroque specialists from all over Aotearoa New Zealand, NZ Barok performs using instruments and playing styles of the period, breathing fresh life and vitality into baroque and classical masterpieces and lesser-known musical treasures from the 18th century.
Music fit for Kings and Queens, Handel’s glorious Water Music and Purcell’s sparkling Fairy-Queen will entrance and entertain. Don’t miss the chance to hear these masterworks in all their shining glory on baroque instruments.
When not performing with our orchestra, NZ Barok's player's can be found tutoring or conducting over the summer break at music camps, teaching their instruments in universities, schools or privately and performing with other professional orchestras. The love of music runs deep for all involved in NZ Barok 🥰
