This concert showcases the amazing talent of young New Zealand orchestral musicians from Secondary Schools from throughout the country. A magnificent and not to be missed event. This year a challenging and exciting program will be conducted by Uwe Grodd, a conductor and flautist who has performed, recorded and conducted internationally for over 25 years. The programme includes Mahler’s incredible Symphony No.1, as well as the Overture to Colas Breugnon by Kabalevsky, and the fantastic Concerto for Strings and Marimba by Sejourne.
The Concerto will feature the up-and-coming young New Zealand percussionist Rachel Thomas, who regularly performs with the iconic New Zealand percussion group ‘From Scratch’, as well as playing solos and concertos around the country.
Presented by Forte Itinerant Teachers of Music, this is a concert not to be missed. Please come and join us to celebrate this exciting showcase of talented young New Zealand musicians.
