On Sun­day af­ter­noon a large au­di­ence gath­ered in the Otu­moetai Col­lege Hall to hear a con­cert given by Youth Phil­har­monic Tau­ranga (YTP) col­lab­o­rat­ing­with the Bay of Plenty Sym­pho­ni­aw­ith mu­sic di­rec­tor Jus­tus Roze­mond.

The YPTwas formed in 2016. Young­mu­si­cians aged 12-18 are given the op­por­tu­nity to ex­tend their mu­si­cian­ship by learn­ing the fun­da­men­tals of or­ches­tral play­ing.

Jus­tus had cho­sen a chal­leng­ing pro­gramme for the play­ers who re­sponded with ad­mirable ma­tu­rity and artis­tic skill to the dif­fer­ing styles and com­posers.

YPT opened the con­cert with the 1st move­ment of Mozart’s Jupiter Sym­phony, tak­ing in their stride the brisk tempo Jus­tus de­manded. Rus­sian com­poser Mikhail Ip­poli­tov-Ivanov’s (1859-1935) ex­otic colour­ful Pro­ces­sion of the Sar­dar came next with some stylish work from the brass sec­tion.
