Combined Concert in Auckland

Concert coming up on 25 May 2013. Auckland Wind Orchestra

The Auckland Youth Symphonic Band and the Auckland Wind Orchestra will be presenting a concert on 25 May at the Centennial Theatre, Auckland Grammar School, 525 Mountain Road, Epsom, starting at 2.30pm.

For those who don't know who these two orchestras are, a little background information may help.

Auckland Youth Symphonic Band

The Auckland Youth Symphonic Band (AYSB) gives young instrumentalists the opportunity to play in a bigger group than many schools can muster. The players come from Intermediate and Secondary Schools from Whangapararoa to Manurewa, with a few old hands from University and the work-force. The conductor, Rod McLeay, has conducted the Band since 1977, and finds it great fun.

Auckland Wind Orchestra

The Auckland Wind Orchestra (AWO) aims to provide performance opportunities to brass, woodwind and percussion players throughout the Auckland region. The orchestra performs a broad range of musical styles with a special focus on original wind music. Our players come from all walks of life, united by the desire to have fun while making great music. The AWO is conducted by Hamish Arthur – an itinerant music tutor working in several secondary schools throughout Auckland teaching brass and directing Concert Bands and Jazz Bands.


Once a year both groups join forces to present a combined concert. The AYSB will play the first half and the AWO will play after the intermission.

This year the concert has been crafted to particularly appeal to children and families and is entitled "An Afternoon at the Movies". It will feature music from popular films and stage shows which will be well known to children and adults alike.

Included in the repertoire will be music from:

Lord of the Rings
The Sorcerer's Apprentice
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Chorale from the Organ Symphony
Somewhere
Frozen
Harry Potter

and many more.

Tickets can be purchased online through Eventfinder - search "An Afternoon at the Movies". Admission is very reasonable at $10 for adults and $5 for children. Door sales will also be available.

The AYSB and AWO would be delighted to see you there and can promise an enjoyable afternoon of interesting and fun music for all.

Gordon Campbell:
On War Crimes And The Afghan Insurgency

Truly, with friends like former defence Minster Wayne Mapp, the SAS does not need enemies. At the very least, the Hit and Run book has raised the possibility that the New Zealand SAS committed war crimes in the attack they led in Afghnistan upon the villages of Naik and Khak Khuday Dad...

Mapp’s attempted defence of the SAS on RNZ this morning unintentionally indicated that collective punishment was baked into the planning exercise for the raid, and also into how the raid proceeded on the ground. More>>
