Project Prima Volta, Chorus
The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra presents Broadway Matinee, a concert with Project Prima Volta for the whole family. The best and brightest young singers from across the Hawke’s Bay join the NZSO to perform songs from some of the greatest musicals ever written.
You’ll hear hits from Bernstein’s West Side Story, Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music and Menken’s Beauty and the Beast performed by the young singers of Project Prima Volta.
Established with a vision to achieve wellbeing through music, Project Prima Volta uses opera as a tool to transform young lives. Every year, 30 Hawke’s Bay teens from diverse backgrounds undergo intensive singing training in preparation for a variety of high-profile performance experiences. Students are offered a supportive, cost-free environment where they are encouraged to find their own voice and imagine the impossible.
The NZSO is proud to join Project Prima Volta on stage to entertain and enthral you all.
