In celebration of Auckland’s appointment as an official UNESCO City of Music, the Wallace Arts Trust has put together the Sunday Concert Series, filling the galleries with live music from established and emerging New Zealand musicians.

The series of 10 Sunday concerts features an eclectic mix of artists, ranging from cosmic jazz and classical tunes to original folk and alt-country.

Presenting original music, the Aldebaran jazz band play cosmic jazz vibes resonating from deep space.

Aldebaran: a red giant star, the eye of Taurus, and from the Arabic meaning ‘the follower’. 

John Bell is one of Australasia’s leading vibes players and has performed everywhere from Berlin’s BB Club to Fukuoka’s New Combo Jazz Club.

Phil Broadhurst on the piano is a true icon of New Zealand jazz, “a legend from the 70s and beyond in space and time”.

On the drums, Steve Cournane adds his seven years of experience living and working as a musician in Latin America to the compositions.

Marika Hodgson on bass is one of New Zealand’s consistent purveyors of bass frequency cosmic waves.

Net profits will go to the performing artists. You are invited to browse the galleries, and enjoy light refreshments at Homestead Eatery before the concert.
