Te Oro 2nd Birthday 
SAT 13 May
The 2nd birthday started with a karakia to bless the Ngāti Paoa sound cone and ended with Three Houses Down bringing down the whare. The day showcased the effect two years has had on our young local artists, as we saw them share the stage with the industry professionals who are their tutors. It showed the talent we all know is here in Tāmaki but revealed how quickly it can grow with the right support, half an opportunity and good motivation. 

In two short years we managed to fill a day with performances from artists who all have a connection to Te Oro. We look forward to growing those connections and adding more so that one day in the future we can have a birthday weekend!

Thank you to all those visited and supported Te Oro on its special day.
