TEEKS with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra – St James Theatre, Wellington
TEEKS, one of the most heartfelt and compelling voices in modern soul and R&B, performs for the first time with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra in June.
This special collaboration between the singer extraordinaire and the National Orchestra of Aotearoa New Zealand will take place over Matariki’s holiday weekend at Wellington’s St James Theatre.
TEEKS in concert with NZSO will perform many of their best-known and beloved songs, from single If Only to heart-pounding Younger and hit Oil & Water, each given a symphonic soul makeover by the NZSO, led by Principal Orchestra in Residence Hamish McKeich.
Speaking about his first performance with the NZSO, TEEKS said, “I am extremely excited to experience the greatness and power of the NZSO. I feel like it’s going to be really special.
Te Karehana Gardiner-Toi, widely known as TEEKS, burst onto the scene in 2017 with her debut EP The Grapefruit Skies.
In 2021, her critically acclaimed, gold-selling debut album Something to Feel went straight to No. 1 on the charts and TEEKS (Ngāpuhi, Ngāi Te Rangi, Ngāti Ranginui) ended the year with three Aotearoa Music Awards for Best Solo Artist, Best Maori Artist and Best Soul/R&B Artist.
“I’m just a Maori boy from the Far North with big dreams, thank you for making my dream come true,” TEEKS told the audience on his sold-out Something to Feel nationwide tour.
Known for immobilizing audiences, TEEKS brings their spellbinding performance art to the stage with humble and unique artistry. The famous Maori singer-songwriter is one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s most exciting voices and one not to be missed.
The world has also embraced TEEKS, with his single certified gold for the first time in South Africa, and a rapidly growing fan base in the UK and Australia, where he performs at the Sydney Opera House in June.
