He’s a composer, performer, writer, actor, professional MC – the list goes on and on. And he’s especially passionate about sharing his love of music with children.

Chris is appearing with the NZSO and conductor Hamish McKeich in Wellington on Saturday afternoon for a family concert, A Musical Menagerie – packed full of bumble bees, little pigs, waltzing cats and thieving magpies.
