How Do I Feel? | A family concert by the New Zealand String Quartet

Sunday 14 April | 1.00pm and 3.00pm

Featuring Helene Pohl (violin I), Monique Lapins (violin II), Gillian Ansell (viola), Rolf Gjelsten (cello).

Celebrating its 35th season in 2022, the New Zealand String Quartet has an established international reputation for its insightful interpretations, compelling communication, and dynamic performing style. The Quartet is known for its imaginative programming and for its powerful connection with audiences of all kinds.

The New Zealand String Quartet has joined forces with popular children’s entertainer Chris Lam Sam to create a musical journey of emotions inspired by the award-winning book ‘How Do I Feel?’ by Rebekah Lipp & Craig Phillips. Combining the magic of music, illustration, and audience participation, this concert will encourage children to explore and evoke familiar feelings like happiness, sadness, and anger, while introducing some potentially new ones like anticipation and amusement! This highly interactive 40-minute performance has been written with primary school-aged tamariki in mind and guarantees to have something the whole family can enjoy.
