Alexander Shelley Conductor
Shayne Carter Singer-songwriter
Joseph Nolan Organ
Join us for a special concert with Shayne Carter, one of New Zealand's most talented and distinctive singer-songwriters. Best known as the frontman of seminal Dunedin band Straitjacket Fits, Carter's later work in Dimmer and in his award-winning memoir show him to be an artist who just keeps growing.
Since his younger days as a leading light of the Dunedin Sound in the 1980s, Carter has come to appreciate classical music and the universal similarities it shares with his own influences "music is music no matter how it’s wrapped.”
Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind collaboration that weaves Carter’s favourite moments from the ‘classical’ canon with reimagined orchestral versions of his own songs.
