We’ve just signed off on this year’s programme booklet, which gives you the repertoire for each concert with notes on the composer and the background to the works. This year we were fortunate to have Charlotte Wilson from Radio NZ’s Concert FM researching and writing the notes for you.

The one programme booklet will see you right through the festival and is a handy reminder of start times as well as a guide to what’s on. What’s more – it’s free. Make sure you pick up a copy at your first concert or from the entranceway at Nelson Cathedral which is open all day.
