Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

The Tawa Orches­tra will be play­ing their first con­cert of the year at the Tawa Col­lege Hall on Sun­day, June 8.

It will also be the first con­cert un­der the ba­ton of up-and-com­ing con­duc­tor and pi­anist Andrew Atkins, who is com­plet­ing an honours mu­sic de­gree at Vic­to­ria Univer­sity.

The pro­gramme is strongly clas­si­cal and the pieces by Mozart, Wieni­awski and Tchaikovsky are lyri­cal, ro­man­tic and at times fiery. ‘‘ Some­thing for ev­ery­one’’, was Atkins’ sum­ma­tion.

Vi­o­lin Con­certo No 2, writ­ten by Pol­ish vi­o­lin vir­tu­oso Henri Wieni­awski, is an ex­am­ple of the ro­man­tic con­certo genre.

The guest violinist for this piece is Laura Bar­ton, an­other school of mu­sic stu­dent at Vic­to­ria Univer­sity.

Ad­mis­sion is by koha and open to all. The con­cert starts at 2pm.
