It’s a mouth-watering selection of classical music’s greatest hits when our much-loved NZSO Music Director Emeritus James Judd returns for a special national tour.

James Judd has an enduring relationship with the NZSO as one of its longest-serving music directors and his affection for the orchestra will shine on this tour. This is a confection of musical treats and orchestral splendour – a must for concertgoers of all ages.
