​The Auckland Youth Orchestra returns to Whangarei to present a free concert featuring Kenny Keppel as soloist in the Spohr Clarinet Concerto, and Music Director Antun Poljanich conducting Smetana's symphonic poem The Moldau and Sibelius' grand Second Symphony.

Kenny Keppel is currently in his second year at the Australian National Academy of Music, where he is studying with David Thomas, Principal Clarinet of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.

Kenny's musical journey began at a very young age, conducting in front of the TV to seemingly endless repeat home-viewings of Disney’s Fantasia. In 2014 he completed his Bachelor's studies at the University of Auckland under the tutelage of James Fry. He was a New Zealand Symphony Orchestra Fellow, an Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra Scholar, and has participated in masterclasses with notable artists including Jörg Widmann, Kari Kriikku, John Kruse, Andreas Sundén, Bjorn Nyman, Dimitri Ashkenazy and Michael Collins.
