Introducing Hanover Hall

The official opening of Hanover Hall by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Friday 2 November 2018

The orchestra moved into its new home, Hanover Hall, in December 2016 (the former Hanover Street Baptist Church).  Not only does Hanover Hall provide the orchestra with an acoustically safe and enlarged rehearsal space as well as office space, but the Hall is also available for hire at affordable rates by other performing arts organisations for workshops, rehearsals and performances (the audience capacity is c. 240). Thus the new venue also provides future opportunities for other associated forms of music.

What’s On at Hanover Hall

2020

Paul Bosauder – Flamenco Guitarrista

Saturday 8 February, 7.30pm at Hanover Hall

Join world-class flamenco musicians as they explore the limits of flamenco dance, composition and improvisation. Tierra y Mar; flamenco danza y guitarra; contrasts tradition and innovation, expression and discipline.
Paul Bosauder is in many respects a cultural ambassador, performing around the world as a highly regarded flamenco guitarist and composer, promoting his love of this music along with his love for his country of origin – New Zealand. Following more than ten years living, working, studying and creating with Spain’s elite flamenco artists, Paul received Matricula de Honor while completing his studies at ESMUC (Escuela Superior de Musica de Cataluña).
In 2018 he introduced Australasia to his work resulting in a completely sold-out summer tour. Paul’s debut flamenco guitar album Tierra y Mar, reached #1 on the NZ Independent Album charts across all genres. This summer, Tierra y Mar expands to include the talents of the multi award-winning flamenco dancer, Triana who will interpret traditional flamenco styles as well as Paul’s compositions. Triana has worked alongside top flamenco artists like Trini de la Isla, Gabriel de la Tomasa, Nino de los Reyes and Olga Llorente. The performance also includes talented percussionist Lito Manez and the cante (singing) of Thais Hernandez.
