Relaxed Chamber Music concerts are back

Chamber Music New Zealand's award-winning series of relaxed and accessible concerts kick off next week in Napier.

Designed especially for diverse audiences, The Relaxed Concert Series then continues in New Plymouth, Christchurch and Auckland and runs from 5 September to 4 October.

The concerts are led by community musician Julian Raphael with Wellington-based chamber quartet The Noveltones, featuring Blair Latham (bass clarinet), Tristan Carter (violin), Jasmine Lovell-Smith (soprano saxophone) and Tom Callwood (double bass).

Audiences are encouraged to learn songs before the concerts and move around and express themselves during performances.

The concerts are sponsored by the IHC Foundation.
