Full House, No Problem for APO Concert

Full House, No Problem for APO Concert

Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra’s ‘Organ Symphony’ concert is almost sold out, but even those without a ticket can catch the performance live.

The 27 February concert, which features Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No.1 (with Ukrainian star Alexander Gavrylyuk on piano) and Saint-Saëns’s Symphony No.3 (the ‘Organ Symphony’ of the concert’s title), will be streamed online, and available to watch for free on both the APO’s own website (apo.co.nz) and Radio New Zealand’s (radionz.co.nz). The APO already broadcasts its concerts on Radio New Zealand but this is the first time people will be able to watch a full performance as well as listen.

“There’s nothing quite like actually being there,” says APO Chief Executive Barbara Glaser, “but for anyone who can’t make it to Auckland that night, this is the perfect solution. We’re committed to reaching as many people as possible, and technology now gives everyone the chance to see a top orchestra play some wonderful music.”

The concert can be viewed on internet-connected devices including smart TVs and even Apple iPhones.

The award-winning production team behind the broadcast is JX Live, which is also an APO sponsor.

“This technology is still pretty new but it means anyone in the world can watch the APO,” says JX Live’s Andy Jalfon. “The orchestra is tapping in to a digital-savvy audience, so even more people can enjoy the concert and nobody need miss out.”

As well as the live stream, the concert will be available to view on the APO website until 14 March.

WHAT: ‘Organ Symphony’, featuring music by Rachmaninov, Saint-Saëns and Honegger
WHERE: Auckland Town Hall / apo.co.nz / radionz.co.nz
WHEN: 8pm Thursday 27 February, and online until 14 March
