A collaboration between the 2022 Wakatipu Music Festival and SOUNZ Centre for New Zealand Music, this commission is an opportunity for a composer to create a work of 7-8 minutes to be performed by a combination of community musicians, young artists, and professional festival artists.

Through a call for proposal and decision by a selection panel facilitated by SOUNZ, we are excited to announce that Lucy Mulgan has been selected for this commission.

“I am thrilled to receive this commission for the Wakatipu Music Festival in 2022. It is so exciting to create a piece which will involve everyone – the community groups, young artists, professional players and singers.”
– Lucy Mulgan

Lucy’s new work will be performed at the Wakatipu Music Festival on 18 April 2022 at the Queenstown Memorial Centre.
