Champion a decade of Sistema Aotearoa unleashing the potential of tamariki, whānau and the Ōtara community through orchestral music.
Celebrating Māori and Pasifika culture through the orchestra, Tekau! features 250 young musicians across a 100-piece string orchestra and choir of 150, in a repertoire full of Sistema Aotearoa favourites including ‘Poi E’, ‘Pasifika Medley’ and ‘Maranga Rā’.
