Concert for Dogs

From Upbeat, 12:16 pm on 9 March 2020

The New Zealand Festival of the Arts is in full swing, and there are concerts, exhibitions and events for everyone.

And not just for humans - Laurie Anderson, one of the three curators of this year's Festival, and has created a concert especially for... dogs! At the outdoor event, where "all dogs are welcome, as long as they’re on a leash and play well with others", Laurie and friends perform a series of pieces designed with our canine companions in mind.

Jess the Labrador took RNZ Concert presenter Cynthia Morahan along to the concert. David Morriss asked Cynthia how things went.
