Te Oro

The long held community dream of a music and arts centre for young people in Glen Innes is here.

In this multi-purpose space young people and the local community can come together to perform, practise and learn the arts; express their creativity and talents; and celebrate their cultures.

The name Te Oro has been gifted to the centre by Ngāti Pāoa with the endorsement of Ngāi Tai ki Tāmaki and Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei.

‘Oro’ is the tonal reverberation or sound within a chamber. Maungarei - Mt Wellington, in its natural state, would contribute this low drone created by the winds moving over its volcanic crater. This natural phenomenon existed before the migration of waka landing in the Tāmaki Makaurau region.
