The climax of the Bay of Plenty Music School 2017 weekend of music-making is the public concert. At it you will be able to hear a symphony orchestra, concert band and choir perform separately, as well as in one massive combined item featuring all 120 or so musicians.

There will be three experienced conductors, who will have been leading the weekend. They are Rupert D’Cruze (Orchestra), Kathleen Mulligan (Concert Band) and Chalium Poppy (Choir).

And what’s more, the concert is very affordable, as entry is by donation. This makes it an excellent opportunity to introduce people, especially youngsters, to some exciting and moving music - both modern and classic.

Doors open at 1:30pm. Patrons are advised to come early to get a good park.
