The Southern Sinfonia of New Zealand
The Southern Sinfonia has been invited by Wanaka's Festival of Colour to tour one of its commissioned works to their 2015 Festival, and the subject of this commission is the painter Frances Hodgkins. Combining the talents of the author Catherine Chidgey, actress Rima te Wiata, composer Anthony Ritchie and the Southern Sinfonia, the project tells the story in words and music of this internationally-acclaimed New Zealand painter.
Help us to get there! To enable us to celebrate the life and works of Frances Hodgkins and to bring this unique experience to life in Wanaka in 2015, we need to reach our target of raising $10,000 in funds in 30 days. Visit the Boosted website (Arts Foundation of New Zealand fundraising) and donate now!
The Southern Sinfonia's 2015 Concert Series will be announced early in 2015.
