The months of May and early June 2015 featured a worldwide journey by Luke Welch through New Zealand and Ontario, Canada. He presented recitals in Christchurch, Wellington, Taupo, Auckland, and Kerikeri (NZ) to enthusiastic audiences and media reviews. The Nut Point Centre (left), was the first of the performances on the main/south island at the beginning of the month, and continued upwards to the north island.
The next recitals were presented in the nation's capital Wellington with two performances - at St. Andrew's-on-the-Terrace, and Wellington Cathedral of St. Paul - and continued to the picturesque town of Taupo. After journeying to the country's largest city of Auckland for a recital at the Thursday Lunchtime Concert series, the tour was capped by a full-length recital at the stunning Turner Centre in Kerikeri. The performance schedule continued across the world in Canada where he presented recitals in Kitchener, Toronto, and Ottawa.
The New Zealand tour was a thoroughly enjoyable experience at every stop along the way and a major extension of gratitude is extended to all of the concert organizers, audience supporters, and crowdfunding backers who made this dream a reality!
