Whangarei Music Society
Whangarei Music Society was incorporated in 1954 with the objective to promote and foster the performance and enjoyment of music in Northland.
We bring world class music to Whangarei, in association with Chamber Music NZ and with support from Whangarei District Council. We always endeavour to present the highest quality of musical performance and teaching through an annual series of concerts, masterclasses and support of other music societies in Northland.

Last Concert for 2020 - Let's celebrate because we can.
Lucien Johnson Quartet ( Jazz)
Time: 7:00 pm
Date: Saturday 31st October, 2020
The Lucien Johnson Quartet of highly accomplished players, together and separately, have received terrific reviews. Award winning composer Lucien Johnson is on tenor saxophone, with Jonathon Crayford on piano, Tom Calllwood playing double bass and Cory Champion on drums.
The Quartet will play material composed by Johnson from his album West of the Sun. This music is described as a being reflective and a fusion of the places that Johnson has lived in including France, the USA, Ethiopia and NZ.
