Come and experience what an orchestra is like up close and personal! Find out how you can start your own musical journey by learning an instrument at Nelson Centre of Musical Arts and joining one of the NCMA orchestras. Directed by Joel Bolton, players from NCMA Youth and Greenhill Community Orchestra present a tantalising array of pieces that will leave you wanting to get involved yourself.
To celebrate the coming Opera in the Park event (February 2022) Nelson City Council present a series of fortnightly encounters with the world of music and musicians.
Music Mix is intended for Nelsonians who enjoy music but have never had an opportunity to give it a go. Held at Victory Community Centre, these one-hour free encounters will give audiences a chance to listen, talk, learn, perhaps to try an instrument, and hopefully to start a musical journey of their own.
Presented in association with NCMA and Multicultural Nelson Tasman, Music Mix will run every fortnight through the summer (with a break over Christmas) and will feature a wide range of performers and instruments including the Nelson Youth Brass Band, NCMA Schola Musica with their ‘Extreme Violins’, the eastern flavoured music of “Klezoum” and many more.
Please come early, as seats will be limited due to COVID requirements.
