Ngā Mihi O Matariki! This Matariki, come together to celebrate with an extra-special night of uplifting music.

One of the brightest stars of New Zealand music, Rob Ruha, joins the ātaahua tones of the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra to bring us a dynamic celebration of Te Pō the night and Te Ao daylight, alongside the world-famous rangatahi choir Ka Hao.

This extra-special, one-night-only concert will be a beautiful moment to welcome te tau hou Māori. Dance the night away with epic waiata such as ‘I Te Pō’, and soulful grooves including ‘Ka Mānu’ and ‘Kalega’, ahead of the country’s first official Matariki public holiday.

Ng Mihi O Matariki! haere mai, huihui mai ki te whakanui i tētahi pō ahurei me te puoru ātaahua.

Ko Rob Ruha tētahi o ngā tino whetū o te ao puoru ki Aotearoa, ā, ka waiata ia me ngā oro ātaahua o hei mea whakanui i Te Pō me Te Ao, i te taha o te rōpū waiata, Ka Hao.

He wā tino rerehua tēnei konohete pō-tahi, tino whakahirahira kia mānawatia ai te tau hou Māori. Kanikanihia te roanga o te pō ki ngā waiata rongonui pērā i ‘I Te Pō’, me ngā ūngeri kōangiangi o ‘Ka Mānu’ me ‘Kalega’, i mua mai i te tuatahitanga o ngā hararei tūmatanui o Matariki ki Aotearoa.
