Today it was my pleasure to host media through the strengthening and redeveloping project for Te Whare Whakarauiki/Wellington Town Hall, one of the most complex projects in NZ.

On reopening it will become part of the national music centre, a collaboration between Te Herenga Waka – Victoria University of Wellington, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (NZSO) and the Wellington City Council.
