Her piece will be performed at the Walter Nash Stadium in Lower Hutt in May as part of a collaboration between SOUNZ Centre for New Zealand Music, Orchestra Wellington and Arohanui Strings - Sistema Hutt Valley.

Claire joined Upbeat’s Zoe George in the studio recently to discuss the process behind the commission.
