-Auckland Sinfonietta was founded in 2016 by Dr. Jucheol Wang as music director with Mark Bennett as concertmaster and musicians who live in the Auckland area. It’s goals are to promote orchestral music by bringing a variety of music to as wide a range of audience as possible. It has a desire to nurture and present music of different ethnicities in an effort to promote multiculturalism and therefore enrich our society. By doing this it aims to fill a niche in the Auckland orchestral scene that is currently not filled by the other orchestral bodies in Auckland.
