You are cordially invited!  Please join me, Peter van de Graaff and my charming, talented wife, Kathleen, and escape the cold gray days of November on this stunning classical adventure to New Zealand. Together, we will discover first-hand the rich culture and sheer beauty of this isolated island paradise. We’ll cruise Auckland’s spectacular bay, visit gushing geysers, relax in hot springs and learn about Maori history, music and dance in Rotorua.  Then we continue south to the capital Wellington. There you’ll enjoy an evening with Brahms, Wagner and Sibelius as Maestro Edo de Waart, conducts the New Zealand National Symphony. After, we’ll fly south to Christchurch where we board the TranzAlpine Express. We'll ride the rails to Arthur’s Pass and then continue on to Franz Josef town and Queenstown for a spectacular cruise on Milford Sound. November is springtime in New Zealand, so please join me and Kathleen for what promises to be another amazing adventure!
