The Josh Emett and Geoff Sewell 5-Star Extravaganza.

‘If music be the food of love play on...’

In July 2021 we held the inaugural Sound Bites, where guests enjoyed an exclusive evening of music and food featuring celebrated tenor Geoff Sewell, and celebrity chef and leading restaurateur Josh Emett, at Auckland’s luxurious Park Hyatt. Feedback from guests was that it was the BEST event they had ever experienced.

We’re excited to announce an encore will take place on Thursday 17 February 2022.

On arrival, guests will be greeted with champagne and canapés before the multi-platinum-selling Geoff Sewell performs an hour repertoire of beloved classics, including Nessun Dorma, O Sole Mio, How Great Thou Art and You'll Never Walk Alone.

This will be followed by a refined dining experience where favourite Kiwi chef Josh Emett will showcase a three-course dinner complete with wine match.

To top off this five star experience, you can also choose to spend the night in a stunning room at the lavish Park Hyatt on Auckland’s waterfront, and enjoy an indulgent breakfast the following morning in the hotel’s signature restaurant, Onemata.
