Artist in Residence – Bic Runga in Concert

July 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$100 - $125

Would you be kind and encourage your friends to attend  a fundraising concert in the stunning Great Hall ? It’s by our first post-quakes artist in residence – Bic Runga

Come and hear brand new material this well-known artist has written while in residence. You will be the first to hear her new songs, which she will later record. She will also, of course, be singing some of her most well-known hits.

The concert is raising funds to continue the brilliant heritage restoration work already under way at this national landmark thanks to our many financial supporters like yourself.

As a valued Arts Centre supporter, we would love you to join us at this intimate concert and be one of the first to hear Bic’s new songs on Friday 5 July.

The Christchurch born and raised songwriter, vocalist and producer – who was made a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for her services to music in 2006 and inducted into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame in 2016 – is excited to be returning to present this special concert and lead workshops for up-and-coming singer songwriters.

While in residence last month, Auckland-based Bic learned more about our fundraising need and enjoyed her experience here so much she decided the concert was a great way to “pay it forward”.

Tickets to the fundraiser concert are either $100 or $125 each. Or, for an extra-special experience, tickets including entry into an exclusive post-concert Meet the Artist event with Bic, wine and canapés, plus front row concert seats are $225 (limited to 15 people). This special post-concert event is generously sponsored by Georges Road Wines. Buy your tickets here.

I hope you will join us at this most special of occasions and help us give one of Christchurch’s most iconic singer-songwriters the best homecoming we can muster!
