Orchestra joins forces with TradeMe


Orchestra joins forces with TradeMe

The Auckland Philharmonia is renowned for its innovation. The latest way to support Auckland’s orchestra is to take part in the “Symphonic Auction in Four Movements”, four 10-day auctions on TradeMe, New Zealand’s most popular website.


Nigel Kennedy with Miranda Adams (Violinist) and Tony Waring (Auction Conductor) from the Auckland Philharmonia, and "the" empty Moët bottle.

The “First Movement” has just been completed. From the comfort of their computers, participants bidded, intensely in the last few hours, for the likes of Lunch with the Mayor; the opportunity to Conduct the Orchestra in 2006; and an empty Magnum of Moët, drunk and signed by Nigel Kennedy on his 1995 tour.

The “Second Movement” is now underway. From today until Thursday 3 November, on www.trademe.co.nz/aucklandphil you can bid for such items as: Two Nights in the gorgeous villa at Miro Vineyard on Waiheke Island – voted one of the ten most romantic places in New Zealand; A Lesson with Divine Diva, Helen Medlyn who is skilled in everything from classical soprano to cabaret star; Roadie for a Day with the Auckland Philharmonia – from loading the truck with instruments in the morning to presenting the bouquet to the soloist at the end of the concert in the evening; Designer Sunglasses by Coral Mazlin, New Zealand's only boutique eyewear manufacturer; Garden Makeover by Second Nature, the award winning landscape construction company; Oggi billboard for a month (Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch); 20 CD boxed set of Mozart, to celebrate his anniversary year; Dinner & Drinks for up to 8 people at Auckland’s stylish Opium Restaurant.

The “Symphonic Auction in Four Movements” is a sensational way to support the Auckland Philharmonia's 25th anniversary fundraising efforts while acquiring rare items and unique experiences. Spread the word: www.trademe.co.nz/aucklandphil

The “Third Movement” of the Symphonic Auction commences on Friday 4 November; the “Fourth Movement” commences on Monday 14 November.

The Auckland Philharmonia receives major funding from Creative New Zealand and major grants from Auckland City and the ASB Charitable Trust.
