Lunchtime concerts podcast

Auckland Libraries' lunchtime concerts bring together solo instrumentalists and vocalists, chamber ensembles and choirs from around the Auckland region, as well as showcasing the musical talent from the University of Auckland School of Music and selected secondary schools. 

The live recordings for these podcasts were carried out by students from the Music and Audio Institute of New Zealand (MAINZ).
