An Evening with Mozart Featuring Amalia Hall and Auckland Sinfonietta Orchestra
- Symphony No. 29 K. 201
- Violin Concerto No. 5 K. 219

Auckland Sinfonietta was founded in 2016. The musicians in the orchestra live in the Auckland area. The goals of the Sinfonietta are to promote orchestral repertoire and variety of music and present it to local audiences.

It also seeks to nurture and present music of different ethnicities in an effort to promote multiculturalism and therefore enrich our society’s tastes and appreciation. By doing this it aims to establish a niche in the Auckland orchestral scene that is currently not filled by the other orchestral bodies in Auckland.

Lipizer and International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians. While still in her teens she won all of the major national awards in New Zealand, including the Gisborne International Music Competition at the age of 16, the National Concerto Competition and National Young Performer of the Year.

Since making her debut at the age of 9 with the Auckland Philharmonia, Amalia has been a regular soloist with orchestras in New Zealand, and has made solo appearances with orchestras in Europe and Mexico including I Virtuosi Italiani, Munich Chamber Orchestra, NDR Radiophilharmonie, Filarmonica Marchigiana and Mexico State Symphony Orchestra.

Her extensive performing experience includes performing concerti, recitals and chamber music throughout Europe, USA, South Africa, China, Mexico and NZ; touring for Chamber Music New Zealand, Curtis on Tour and as a member of the NZ Chamber Soloists; and recording chamber music for Bridge Records and Atoll Records.
