  • Sat 20 Mar, 7:00pm – 8:30pm


Whitianga Town Hall, 24 Monk Street, Whitianga


All Ages

In conjunction with Creative Mercury Bay, the Auckland Youth Orchestra, conducted by Antun Poljanich, presents:

Copland: Fanfare for the Common Man
Vaughan-Williams: The Lark Ascending (soloist: Jim Wu, violin)
Ravel: Pavane for a Dead Princess
Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition

Experience the thrill of 75 talented young musicians (ages 16-26) performing together with energy, precision and passion!

Copland's Fanfare will be familiar to audiences, as it has inspired many compositions, from space shuttle missions to Superman movies. The soaring, lyrical melodies of "The Lark Ascending" makes it a perennial favourite with audiences and Ravel's "Pavane" is a masterpiece. The concert wraps up with Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition," a brilliant showpiece in the orchestral repertoire, displaying the different sections of the orchestra in the most inventive and striking manner.
