A summer soirée promising to delight, the Aorangi Symphony Orchestra Strings present their popular programme for double and large string orchestra, with string soloists.
From a 2014 review: 'The Elgar Introduction and Allegro, Op 47 demonstrated grandeur unbounded, an evocation of Empire which is so typical of the composer, and the difficult fugue was handled with a rare and polished delight.

...The concert finished with Ralph Vaughn Williams's "Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis". Presented in the detailed arrangement for double string ensemble designed by Vaughan Williams, it filled the sanctuary with harmony and the audience with pleasure' (Waikato Times, June 1st 2014).
- With internationally acclaimed Conductor Sarah Bisley, Soprano Emma Roxburgh and Concertmaster Elena Abramova.

Programmes free of charge! Featuring:
Grieg, Edvard - “Holberg Suite” Op. 40 (1884-5)
