The sym­phony wel­comes the re­turn of New Zealand’s es­tab­lished lead­ing so­prano Morag Atchi­son, oboist Bede Han­ley, and tal­ented con­duc­tor and former Ma­cleans Col­lege stu­dent Ray­mond Chan.

Swan Lake, Ar­turo Mar­quez’s

Dan­zon’s No. 2, as well as arias by Mozart and Puc­cini, and Vi­valdi’s
