NZSO: KIA KOTAHI - ALL TOGETHER                             

Beethoven, Symphony No. 9

Troy Kingi orch. Mahuia Bridgman-Cooper, Ask the Skies, Let the Soul Run & Fool the Night
 

Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, and its famous deployment of Friedrich Schiller's poem, Ode to Joy, has long been a symbol and celebration of Beethoven’s values of fraternity, equality and unity.

In this spirit, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra presents Kia Kotahi: He Toirangi A-Ao Kia Harikoa. Originally slated for 2020, this unique performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony will see 300 young performers join the NZSO to perform Beethoven’s masterpiece with lyrics in te reo Maori. Kia Kotahi also features the world premiere of three exceptional new songs written by Troy Kingi and performed between movements by his band, guest vocalists and the NZSO
