The NZSO and The Phoenix Foundation Celebrate!
Friday, August 31st, 2018
Dunedin, New Zealand
To celebrate their 20th year The Phoenix Foundation have joined forces with the NZSO for a remarkable concert experience. The Phoenix Foundation is one of the most iconic New Zealand bands of the 21st century. Formed in Wellington in the late-90s, they have been lauded here and overseas and feted by rock royalty, from Neil Finn and Jarvis Cocker to Iggy Pop. The band has also contributed to several movie soundtracks, including film-maker Taika Waititi’s celebrated box office smash Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Drawing from their much loved catalogue, The Phoenix Foundation and Orchestra will perform unique arrangements of audience favourites and deep album cuts. It will also be a rare opportunity to hear their soundtrack work performed live.
