Warkworth Music is a local organisation which began life as The Rodney Music Club over 40 years ago. Its aim is to provide top class classical musical performances at affordable prices and at local venues.

All the performers are based in New Zealand so the restrictions on international travel will not be an issue and we hope that Covid-19 will not force us to cancel concerts like we have had to do in the last two years.
