Music in Parks 2012

 

Music in Parks runs from January to March and is made up of three different series, each with their own genre of music.

 

Summer Sounds are multi-billed concerts featuring celebrated and upcoming artists of popular music. 

Jazz at the Rotunda showcases New Zealand’s rich pool of talented jazz and blues musicians.

The Culture Garden presents a range of niche music genres to entertain and inspire.

 

Past programmes have seen top acts such as Anika Moa and The Datsuns, and jazz artists Mike Nock and Godfrey de Grut grace the stage. 

 

Movies in Parks 2012

 

A highlight on Auckland’s calendar of events, Movies in the Parks presents live music followed by a feature-length movie and runs from February to March.  Previous line-ups have included artists Collapsing Cities, Bannerman and Glass Owls.
