Composer specifically selected for unique commission

A collaboration between the 2022 Whakatipu Music Festival and SOUNZ Centre for New Zealand Music, this commission will create a unique and original 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 Whakatipu 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”
