Auckland Philharmonia is restructuring

The Auckland Philharmonia has substantially restructured its board and subsidiary committees in a major governance review that will take effect on 1 October when an amended constitution will be introduced.

Announcing the changes today, Secretary of the Auckland Philharmonia Society, Mr Brecon Carter, said the Society has now delegated responsibility to a Board of Directors composed equally of musicians and external directors, and chaired by an external independent director.

This and other substantive changes have resulted from an extensive review and discussion by the Society members and their advisors. Those considerations have included reviewing successful international co-operative orchestras and recommended best practice in governance.

"The Auckland Philharmonia is one of two major orchestras in this country. We have achieved a spectacular 22 year history in terms of excellence, community outreach, obtaining sponsorship, and winning customer and critic commendation for our performances,” Carter said. "However, we recognise that we cannot rest there.”

"The challenge now is to take the orchestra forward to a new level artistically in the next two decades. To be successful in artistic terms we needed to rethink our structure and processes, and that has included a thorough review of the board and management support platforms."

"The aim is to keep the best of everything artistic, to retain our commercial and community support while striving to reach new levels of quality and artistic achievement."

The Auckland Philharmonia presents more than 60 symphonic concerts each year, in addition to special events, and accompanying performances by national and international opera and ballet companies and celebrities. It also offers an extensive music education programme. In residence and active in the Auckland region, the creation of its content is accessible throughout New Zealand. The Auckland Philharmonia thrives on community support and loyalty and maintains its reputation as being a relevant and tangible arts organisation.
