UC's new Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities opened to the public for the first time on Saturday 20 May and has proven popular with hundreds of visitors in its first week to see ancient Greek and Roman artefacts from the University of Canterbury’s world-renowned James Logie Memorial Collection. On the night of the opening day, the University of Canterbury’s chamber choir Consortia, conducted by Sue Densem, performed to a full house in the Great Hall

“It’s a great boon to the central city to have another attraction to draw people to this arts and culture precinct. Our new Music and Classics facilities at the Arts Centre reconnect UC with its history in the heart of Christchurch and further cements the University as a vital force in the future of the new city with strong links to the community through arts and performance,” UC Vice-Chancellor Dr Rod Carr said.
