The Kāpiti Concert Orchestra is delighted to present their first concert for 2020 at Te Raukura ki Kāpiti, Paraparaumu. This will be an occasion to celebrate just how far we have come from Covid -19 lockdown days, to being able to go to a concert again and to experience the wonderful new performing arts venue on the Kāpiti Coast. The programme includes works by Dvorak - his much loved Symphony No 9, "from the New World" as well as works by New Zealand composers - John Ritchie's "Papanui Road, Overture for Orchestra" which paints a musical picture of that well-known street in Christchurch and two works by Dorothea Franchi, one for Viola and Orchestra with soloist Sophia Acheson and another for Orchestra, Harmonica and Harp with soloists Coral Trimmer and Michelle Velvin.
With the Covid Resurgence Plan, this concert will now take place on Saturday 17th October 2020. Tickets to the original concert date are still valid for entry to this new date.
