The NZSM Orchestra invites you to experience the interplay of darkness and light. Returning to St Andrew's on the Terrace, the orchestra will perform a programme of contrasting aural moods.
Britten's Sinfonia da Requiem, thought to be written as a reaction to the darkening political developments that led to the Second World War, will be performed alongside Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet and Mozart's Symphony No. 35 ‘Haffner’. Rod Biss' Four New Zealand Bird Songs, inspired by the plight of New Zealand's endangered Tara-iti (Fairy Tern), will be sung by soloist and NZSM’s Head of Classical Voice, Margaret Medlyn.
This is the first of the School’s two orchestra concerts for 2019, the second being on 4 October.
Tickets: $15/10 presales available on Eventfinda, or $20/$15 at the door (eftpos only).
