Enchanted Tales

Auckland Wind Orchestra is performing a programme of “Enchanted Tales” including the Triumphal March from Peter and the Wolf by Prokofiev and Berceuse and Finale from The Firebird by Stravinsky. De Meij’s Symphony No. 1 “The Lord of the Rings” is inspired by Tolkien’s trilogy. We are playing three movements, I Gandalf, III Gollum and V Hobbits.

Ewan Clark (BMus, Grad.Dip.Arts, Dip.Tchg.) was born in Dunedin and has worked and studied his way up New Zealand ever since. He has a wide range of interests in music, starting with playing trombone while still at primary school. He studied composition at Otago University and a number of his compositions have been performed. During five years in Wellington Ewan furthered his composition studies and received conducting lessons. Since then he has conducted many different ensembles. For the last two years he has taught music at Auckland Grammar School. Ewan joined the Auckland Wind Orchestra as a trombonist last year and conducted one piece in the last concert.

The concert starts at 3pm on Saturday 5th April at the Aotea Chapel of the Methodist Mission. Door sales are $15 or, for seniors and students, $10. Aotea Chapel of the Methodist Mission is opposite the Town Hall on Queen Street.
