Tarras Community Church, 27 Church Lane, Tarras – Adults $35, seniors $30, students $5

This programme is centred around three of the most popular and well-established works of the flute and percussion repertoire: Tōru Takemitsu’s Toward the Sea, Lou Harrison’s First Concerto for Flute and Percussion, and New Zealander Gareth Farr’s Kembang Suling. These colourful masterpieces provide the versatile duo the opportunity to highlight the alluring timbral combination of flutes (piccolo, soprano, alto, and bass) and percussion (rosewood marimba, gongs, and drums). The concert also brings the unique voices of other American composers as well as recently commissioned works by New Zealand composers.

Hannah Darroch and Justin DeHart are dedicated to championing both new and classic pieces for flute and percussion. Known as engaging and highly-skilled musicians, their performances offer a dynamic up-close audience experience, introducing people to the versatility and colour of their many instrumental textures.
