Brighten your day with MusicWorks Kids in Town – it’s a lunch break like no other.  Enjoy live music, song and dance right in the heart of our Central City.

Jazz bands, choirs, kapa haka, Christmas carols and all kinds of colourful and creative performances will be on showcase, all thanks to our Christchurch kids and school teachers.

The MusicWorks Kids in Town programme runs through term four. These are free public performances, so come along.
