Following a sold out performance at Alberton last year, players from NZ Barok return for this delightful, light-hearted one hour concert, presenting an assortment of Baroque musical gems with a touch of history.

For this one-off concert, musicians Miranda Hutton, Janne Ensor, Wen Chuan Lin and Helen Brinkman will be joined by special guest soprano Rowena Simpson.

Rowena studied baroque singing in the Netherlands after graduating in musicology at the NZ School of Music. She worked with early music ensembles in Europe for six years before returning to Wellington where she enjoys a career performing as a soloist and ensemble singer.

A Sunday afternoon outing for all ages, the concert will feature a sumptuous selection of music including Handel, Monteclair and Scarlatti. Tickets include drinks & canapes served from 4pm.
