Join Fiona Pears, Graham Wardrop and the incredible New Zealand Army Band in a sensational night of music at the Transitional Cathedral on March 30th 2019. Backed by some of New Zealand’s finest musicians; Tom Rainey, Greg Donaldson, Pete Fleming and Ian Tilley; this is set to be a truly memorable night.
‘The Gift of Music’ is a very special evening with 100% of money raised going to Christchurch’s less fortunate – our street whānau, who struggle to survive through winter.
The proceeds from the concert will be used to provide medical attention for adults and children living in need on our streets.
Registered charity Street Wise will be in charge of distributing the funds.
