The Orchestra - Energy, Precision, Passion!
The Music - Quirky, Delightful, Magnificent!

Auckland Youth Orchestra, conducted by Antun Poljanich, presents a FREE symphony concert. Most of the seats are free, but we hope many will choose to support us by purchasing great seats for the modest price of $12.50 (+booking fees).

On the Programme:
Philip Glass - Symphony for Eight (Cellos): An unusual sight at a symphony concert - just eight cellos on the stage! This short, rhythmic work is in fact the 3rd movement of Glass's third symphony, recreated as a cello octet.

Nielsen - Concerto for Flute (soloist: Alina Chen): This delightful work, written by Denmark's most important composer, is performed by 18-year-old Alina Chen who is about to undertake studies at New York's Juilliard School. Alina was a soloist in the 2023 NZSO Young Artists Showcase and the winner of the 2023 AYO Soloist Competition.

Sibelius - Symphony No.2: The concert presents music not only from Denmark's greatest composer, but also Finland's - Sibelius! This famous symphony received an overwhelmingly enthusiastic reception at its 1902 premiere and has become the most-recorded of Sibelius' works.
