Celebration show for 25th birthday
Manukau Symphony Orchestra is celebrating its 25th birthday by staging a special anniversary performance on St Patricks evening.
Dance and Sing is a classical music show with the players being a mix of local artists and musicians performing all time crowd favourites.
To make the celebrations memorable, your Eastern Courier and Papakura Courier each has a ticket double pass to give away to a fortunate winner to attend the performance at Vodafone Events Centre, in Manukau, on Saturday, March 17, at 7.30pm.
The symphony welcomes the return of New Zealand’s established leading soprano Morag Atchison, oboist Bede Hanley, and talented young conductor Raymond Chan.
Chan’s programme will feature Rossini’s William Tell Overture, selections from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, Arturo Marquez’s Danzon’s No. 2, as well as arias by Mozart and Puccini, and Vivaldi’s Oboe Concerto.
‘‘One of my visions is to reinvigorate classical music and engage with younger audiences,’’ says Chan.
